Carrie Hamilton was just thirty-eight when she died of lung cancer in 2002, but the briefness of her life only intensified its importance to Carol Burnett, the mother who survived her. Their relationship, though close, was not untroubled: As a teenager, Carrie slipped into a maelstrom of drug-hazed confusion, alienating her family and endangering her mother's marriage. Her recovery, however, was no illusion: In the few years she still had left, she flourished an actress, singer, and playwright, even performing many times successfully with her famous mom. In this obviously heartfelt memoir, Carol Burnett shares memories and personal documents about her beloved daughter. A fitting tribute from a living legend; now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
