Publisher Comments:

The heartwarming memoir of beloved television actress Valerie Harper, best known for her role asandlt;Bandgt; andlt;/Bandgt;Rhoda Morgenstern on andlt;Iandgt;The Mary Tyler Moore Showandlt;/Iandgt; and on andlt;Iandgt;Rhoda.andlt;/Iandgt;andlt;pandgt;As Mary Richards's lovable and self-deprecating best friend Rhoda Morgenstern on andlt;Iandgt;The Mary Tyler Moore Show, andlt;/Iandgt;Valerie Harper also turned the world on with her smile. Viewers could relate to Rhoda, native New Yorker and struggling working girl, who was unlucky in love and insecure about her weight but who always kept her sense of humor. Valerie was an unknown actress when she won the part that made her famous, and by the time andlt;Iandgt;Rhoda, andlt;/Iandgt;her popular spin-off show, ended, she had won four Emmys and a Golden Globe. The role was groundbreaking. Onscreen, she represented a self-reliant new identity for women of the 1970s while off-screen she fought alongside feminists Gloria Steinem and Bella Abzug for equal rights, among other issues that were important to her. Valerie's showbiz journey has taken her from Broadway, where she performed as a dancer and eventually found herself onstage with Lucille Ball and Jackie Gleason, to Hollywood, where she went down in history as one of television's best-loved characters, and back to the Great White Way, where she recently won a Tony Award nomination for her critically acclaimed role as Tallulah Bankhead. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Her inspiring story is laced with triumphs and a few transformative obstacles along the way--her ongoing battle with cancer chief among them--but she remains positive, upbeat, and funny no matter what, grateful for the incredible life detailed in the pages of andlt;iandgt;I, Rhodaandlt;/iandgt;.
