Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A biography of one of television's enduring stars, chronicling her early years at Hollywood studios, her tempestuous marriage to Desi Arnaz and their triumph with I Love Lucy. (Sept.)
Library Journal
More than 40 years after the show's premiere, I Love Lucy reruns on television still attract a devoted following. Because of this interest, more than half a dozen books have been published during the past 15 years about the show itself or about Ball and husband Desi Arnaz. As a result of Brady's focus on Ball, more time is spent with her lesser-known (but hardly undocumented) film career, and the I Love Lucy show doesn't appear until halfway through her narrative. Still, there's not a lot of difference between this book and Warren G. Harris's Lucy & Desi (LJ 9/1/91) or Coyne Steven Sanders and Tom Gilbert's Desilu (LJ 1/93). All three books present the same basic facts, and all are well researched and well written. Buy only according to demand.-John Smothers, Monmouth Cty. Lib., Manalapan, N.J.
