Forever Lucy: The Life of Lucille Ball
This unauthorized biography reveals Lucille Ball's long and colorful climb to fame; her passionate, tempestuous marriage to Desi, and her ultimate personal and professional triumph. Indeed, from the prologue through the conclusion, the authors stress sensational aspects of the comedienne's life. They also report on congressional hearings at which Ball, who was suspected of communistic leanings during the Cold War, was examined, her childhood and early strivings in Hollywood as a contract player, etc. The book includes numerous other details of her career: her next successful series, The Lucy Show ; her leadership of the production company Desilu; her lasting second marriage; performances on stage and in films. Interestingly, nearly all the authors' sources are anonymous, described as "associates" or "friends."
