One day Carol Burnett bought a typewriter, placed it on her work table, and began a letter to her three daughters. What she wanted to tell them was what her own childhood had been like. What she DIDN'T want was for her children to grow up knowing as little about their mother's childhood as she had known about the early lives of her own parents. Day by day long-forgotten memories came flooding back, memories of a childhood sometimes so painful that she had barely been able to confront its joys and sorrows, until she sat down to write her letter. That letter became this book. This is a wonderful book - happy, sad, a little of everything, may more of some. You will encounter this story just as vivdly as Burnett lived it, with the freshness and amazement of direct experience. It is a rich, touching memoir of a determined spirit who insisted on life and joy - and found it, wherever she happened to be. Jacket and cover are fine. 308 pages, fine with no tears or marks. Book includes numerous photographs of Carol Burnett and her family. 8vo - over 7Â¾" - 9Â¾" tall.
