Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Although Lucille Ball died in 1989, this autobiography written prior to 1964 has only recently been discovered among her papers. She describes a childhood deeply affected by her father's death and her mother's withdrawal from her life. Raised by her grandparents, Ball craved attention and developed a tempestuous, vivacious, fiery, and yet insecure personality that would later lead her to comic stardom. It took years of working from the bottom of show business before she became a television hit, with the help of her husband, co-star, and business partner, former Cuban bandleader Desi Arnaz. Ball abandoned the book for fear of hurting Arnaz, although she gives him credit for the tremendous success she enjoyed with "I Love Lucy."

Review

Praise for Love, Lucy

“We watched her, we loved her...Lucy fans will find the book fascinating.”—Detroit News

“Her story is one of triumph...a winner.”—New York Newsday

“A warm, conversational memoir...Lucille Ball died in 1989, so it's a shock to hear the gleeful, guiless voice of ‘America’s favorite redhead’ ring out with such vitality in an autobiography.”—The New York Times Book Review

“An extremely interesting memoir...It’s a way to discover first hand what was most important to Lucy—like Desi, her mother, her family and kids, the career, her mentor Lela Rogers—and what was not. She was the geniuine article. So is this book.”—Robert Osborne, The Hollywood Reporter
