This strikingly beautifully designed biography focuses on the life of Lucille Ball—AKA Lucy. With “that crazy redhead” among other endearing titles and references like the “Queen of Television Comedy” and the “First Lady of Comedy”, it is easy to see how Lucille Ball got these titles in learning here about her hard work ethic, perfectionism, humility, and loyalty and love to family, friends, fans, colleagues, and up-and-coming female comedians. A.K.A. Lucy: The Dynamic and Determined Life of Lucille Ball captures the reader in this heartfelt, thorough, and smoothly weaved summarization, which includes details and photographs of Lucille Ball’s life (childhood days to her last), as well as her long and vast career. On a personal note of interest in reading this biography, I remember being so dedicated to watching “I Love Lucy” reruns in the 90’s and laughing more at watching them than “Saturday Night Live”. This book enabled me to learn how Lucille and Desi were such trailblazers! Lastly, it is noteworthy to share that this book is officially authorized by the estate of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.
