Publisher's Summary

This Time Together is 100 percent Carol Burnett: funny, irreverent, and irresistible.

Carol Burnett is one of the most beloved and revered actresses and performers in America. The Carol Burnett Show was seen each week by millions of adoring fans and won 25 Emmys in its remarkable 11-year run. Now, in This Time Together, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another. Listening to it feels like sitting down with an old friend who has wonderful tales to tell.

In engaging anecdotes, Carol discusses her remarkable friendships with such stars as Jimmy Stewart, Lucille Ball, Cary Grant, and Julie Andrews; the background behind famous scenes, like the moment she swept down the stairs in her curtain-rod dress in the legendary "Went With the Wind" skit; and things that would happen only to Carol. Those include the prank with Julie Andrews that went wrong in front of the First Lady; the famous Tarzan Yell that saved her during a mugging; and the time she faked a wooden leg to get served in a famous ice-cream emporium. This poignant look back allows us to cry with the actress during her sorrows, rejoice in her successes, and finally, always, to laugh.

What the Critics Say

"I read This Time Together in one sitting and when I finished I felt like Carol had been sitting beside me telling me these wonderful stories of her life. It's funny, it's endearing and very moving. I cannot recommend it highly enough." (Julie Andrews)

"I grew up watching Carol Burnett. She's an amazing actress, talented writer and legendary comedienne. She inspired me to do what I'm doing today. And believe me, if I knew how to read, I would definitely read this book." (Ellen DeGeneres)

"Carol was a huge star on television because she was funny, daring, and always genuine. We loved Carol because we felt we knew her. With this book, we do. She trusts us with her personal anecdotes, happy, sad, hilarious and poignant. Thank you Carol." (Billy Crystal)

    "Thoroughly entertaining"

    Thank you Carol for sharing this book in your own words. From one Texan to another you are the best entertainer who has ever graced a stage or screen. Your humble nature and thankful attitude and value of friendships are an example to us all.

    "Wonderful book!"

    I loved this book! I was born after The Carol Burnett show, but I've watched reruns with my mom, who loves her. I always enjoyed the shows and thought Carol would be a nice friend in "real life." I feel this even more after listening to her book. I'm so glad she read it, too. I would highly recommend this book!

    "Short but sweet"

    I had recently read Tim Conway's book and that was a bit underwhelming. Under funny actually. And it wasn't read by the author. But Ms. Burnett reads this and it's great. Funny but also illuminating of a life we otherwise see only from a distance. Fans of her will read this book no matter what I say here. Those, maybe significantly younger than I, could really like this book but I think I would recommend getting to know the performer a bit first. Youtube it.

    "My favorite"

    What a wonderful book, I loved it that it was done by Ms Burnett. It made it so personal and I felt as if I were part of her world, I laughed and I cried. Ms Burnett has always been my most favorite person and I have followed her for decades. Thank you so much for sharing!

    "This Time Together"

    I am a big fan of Carol Burnett, but I was disappointed. It was just understated and way too short.
