From Booklist

On the heels of her brother Garry’s memoir, My Happy Days in Hollywood (2012), comes Marshall’s own recounting of her career as an actress and a director. The youngest of three, Marshall grew up in an apartment in the Bronx and reluctantly attended her mother’s dance school. Her college career was cut short by pregnancy, which led to a brief marriage. After her marriage fell apart, Marshall found her way to Hollywood to give acting a shot. A guest-starring role in her brother’s hit show Happy Days turned out to be fortuitous, leading to Marshall’s own show, Laverne & Shirley, a big success that ran for eight seasons and made Marshall famous. When the show ended, Marshall added directing to her credits, taking her first gig with the Whoopi Goldberg movie Jumping Jack Flash and going on to helm classics such as Big, Awakenings, and A League of Their Own. Hollywood aficionados will get a kick out of Marshall’s anecdotes about her circle of friends, including Albert Brooks, John Belushi, and Carrie Fisher, all told in a funny, down-to-earth manner. --Kristine Huntley
