LUCILLE: THE LIFE OF LUCILLE BALL, Kathleen Brady

LUCILLE: THE LIFE OF LUCILLE BALL, Kathleen Brady

In her twenty-year career in show business, which included stints on the stage and in radio, and roles in over sixty films, Lucille Ball had only modest and sporadic success. But her television program I Love Lucy had been tailored to her talents, and she more than anyone realized that it was her last chance to fulfill the ambition that had sustained her through the frustation of her professional life and the anguish of a failing marriage.

For millions of television viewers, and for years to come, Lucille would in effect become her greatest creation, Lucy Ricardo. While that role revealed her true gifts, it changed her life immeasurably, and the remarkable individual who was Lucille Ball slowly began to be obscured in the shadows of Lucy.

The definitive biography presents an extraordinary portrait of the Lucille that her fans have never known, based on recollections of fellow performers like Milton Berle, Ginger Rogers, Bob Hope, and Katharine Hepburn; her closest friends and family; and Lucille herself. From her childhood, when her virtual abandonment instilled in her a relentless drive for love and attention, through her struggling early years in vaudeville and Hollywood, through her troubled relationship with Desi Arnaz, which became the basis for one of television's famous marriages, Brady vividly recounts the story of this passionate, vulnerable, and often fiercely demanding woman. Lucille is the thoughtful and candid biography this great star has long deserved.
