The top biography, maybe top 5 of all my books...
I love when the author reads their own story, especially an autobiography. It's their story, they own it, they know how to tell it.
Who doesn't love Laverne? But my favorite Penny Marshall character is simply Penny Marshall, the woman.
I was particularly touched by Penny getting choked by emotion when telling of friends'/family members'/colleagues' deaths, or the 9-11 Attacks, for example.
This was an awesome book. I was afraid at first that Penny telling her own story would be unintelligible because of her mumbly-accented speaking voice. You warm up to it pretty quick. There are several times where you can tell she's gone off-book and it just telling you the story. Between that, the emotion, and the behind-the-Hollywood-scenes stories, this has got to be my Number 1 favorite biography.
