Kanfer traces the arc of her career from its unlikely beginnings in a lonely and desolate childhood in upstate New York through her pursuit of the super stardom that eluded her on the big screen and follows the actress through a series of disappointing affairs and sorrow -- until she meets a Cuban conga drummer six years her junior, and falls headlong in love with Desi Arnaz.
Taking us through the development of television both as technology and cultural phenomenon, Kanfer chronicles the difficult birth of the sitcom that changed the world. He details the early executive meetings, the rocky first productions, the shaky first weeks -- and the unpredicted triumph.
