Jones, multitalented actress and all-American girl is married to Ingels, neurotic Jewish comic and successful talent agent. In alternating chapters, the two relate their individual lives and the story of their offbeat romance and marriage. Of most interest are Shirley's tales of her discovery by Rodgers and Hammerstein and experiences in Hollywood, as well as her 16-year marriage to Jack Cassidy. Marty's stories of a driven childhood, manic behavior, early success on a 1960s sitcom series, later breakdown on the Tonight show, and agoraphobia which totally incapacitated him, become a bit wearing. This very personal narrative does have some interesting anecdotes and a certain morbid fascination for celebrity-watchers, but it's not a necessary purchase for small-budgeted libraries.--Marcia L.
