  • Lucille: The Life of Lucille Ball

    In 20 years of show business, Lucille Ball had only modest and sporadic success. Her TV program, I Love Lucy, was her last chance to fulfill the ambition that had sustained her through the frustrations of her professional life and the anguish of a failing marriage. The role of Lucy Ricardo revealed her true gifts, but it changed her life immeasurably. This definitive portrait of Lucille Ball is based on the recollections of fellow performers, her closest friends and family, and Lucille herself.

    "Who doesn't love Lucy? The author, maybe?..."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Lucille to be better than the print version?

    Audio as it can be used on the go. I prefer to curl up with a good audio device.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There's only one...


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I enjoyed the insight on the rarely discussed business side of Desilu. Both Lucy and Desi were shrewd managers of their empire.


    Any additional comments?

    As others have written, Lucy's children do not come across in the best light.

    Anyone who saw an episode of Saturday Night Live between 1999 and 2006 knows Rachel Dratch. She was hilarious! So what happened to her? After a misbegotten part as Jenna on the pilot of 30 Rock, Dratch was only getting offered roles as "Lesbians. Secretaries. Sometimes secretaries who are lesbians." Her career at a low point, Dratch suddenly had time for yoga, dog- sitting, learning Spanish - and dating. After all, what did a forty-something single woman living in New York have to lose?

    I enjoyed her performances on SNL and wanted to gain some insight on her background. I highly recommend.
