Library Journal - Library Journal
Harris, author of Natalie and RJ ( LJ 8/88), offers this dazzling portrayal of the relationship between the hard-driven actress from Jamestown, New York and the sizzling Cuban bandleader. Beginning with childhood tragedies and show business heartaches, Harris progresses to the pair's turbulent marriage (haunted by Desi's alcohol abuse and frequent affairs) and the growth of the legendary TV series. He provides extraordinary anecdotes on scores of celebrities including Vivian Vance, William Frawley, Xavier Cugat, George Raft, and Hedda Hopper. He skillfully weaves personal reminiscences from the couple's friends, family, and co-workers into a most candid, yet sympathetic account. His story is touching, often angry, nostalgic, and, above all, unforgettable. For most public libraries. BOMC alternate.-- Carol J. Binkowski, Bloomfield, N.J.
