Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A touching and hilarious memoir by the author of Carrie and Me: A Mother Daughter Love Story, This Time Together is 100 percent Carol Burnett – funny, irreverent, and irresistible.

 

Carol Burnett is one of the most beloved and revered actresses and performers in America. The Carol Burnett Show was seen each week by millions of adoring fans and won twenty-five Emmys in its remarkable eleven-year run. Now, in This Time Together, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another – reading it feels like sitting down with an old friend who has wonderful tales to tell.

 

In engaging anecdotes, Carol discusses her remarkable friendships with stars such at Jimmy Stewart, Lucille Ball, Cary Grant, and Julie Andrews; the background behind famous scenes, like the moment she swept down the stairs in her curtain-rod dress in the legendary “Went With the Wind” skit; and things that would happen only to Carol – the prank with Julie Andrews that went wrong in front of the First Lady; the famous Tarzan Yell that saved her during a mugging; and the time she faked a wooden leg to get served in a famous ice cream emporium. This poignant look back allows us to cry with the actress during her sorrows, rejoice in her successes, and finally, always, to laugh.

Synopsis:

Funny, irreverent, and irresistible, "This Time Together" is filled with engaging anecdotes about Burnett's childhood; her remarkable friendships with stars such as Jimmy Stewart and Lucille Ball; and the ups and down in her extraordinary career. b&w photos throughout.

Elisabeth Scherer, July 23, 2010 (view all comments by Elisabeth Scherer)
This is a glimpse it Ms. Burnett's past that is filled with the icons that most of us only dream about knowing better. Lucille Ball, Tim Conway, Cary Grant, Julie Andrews, and more. The chapters flew by and I can only say that I wished the book was longer. The book at times is laugh out loud funny and makes me wish we could watch all those great variety shows again!
