    October 15, 1951

    I Love Lucy first appeared on television October 15, 1951 and introduced Lucy Ricardo to a world who seemed to be waiting for her. This biography of Lucille Ball is as thorough as it is enjoyable. Kathleen Brady does a splendid job detailing Ball's life before Hollywood and television as well as keeping this reader interested in Ms. Ball's life after television. While documenting the difficulties in the Arnaz/Ball marriage the author does so with the facts rather than unnecessary speculation. She tells this private part of Lucille Ball's story with courtesy and respect. The development of I Love Lucy, Desilu - basically inventing both the character and the medium in which Ms. Ball thrived - is an exciting read. Lucille Ball had a big busy life of early and unusual accomplishment for a woman of her time. Her story is compelling. From Kathleen Brady's introduction: 'This character remains timely not because she is subservient but because she is subversive.' WOW!
