About this audiobook

The one and only autobiography by the iconic Lucille Ball, hailed by TV Guide as the "#1 Greatest TV Star of All Time."

Love, Lucy is the valentine Lucille Ball left for her fans—a warm, wise, and witty memoir written by Lucy herself. The legendary star of the classic sitcom I Love Lucy was at the pinnacle of her success when she sat down to record the story of her life. No comedienne had made America laugh so hard, no television actress had made the leap from radio and B movies to become one of the world's best-loved performers. This is her story—in her own words.

The story of the ingenue from Jamestown, New York, determined to go to Broadway, destined to make a big splash, bound to marry her Valentino, Desi Arnaz. In her own inimitable style, she tells of their life together—both storybook and turbulent; intimate memories of their children and friends; wonderful backstage anecdotes; the empire they founded; the dissolution of their marriage. And, with a heartfelt happy ending, her enduring marriage to Gary Morton.

Here is the lost manuscript that her fans and loved ones will treasure. Here is the laughter. Here is the life. Here's Lucy…

    The manuscript of this book, which ends in 1964, was found in a file after Lucille Ball's death by her children, who were unaware of its existence.This was interesting reading about Lucy's early life in Jamestown, New York. She got her start in show business by modeling. She had a tumultuous marriage to Desi Arnez. She finally found security with Gary Morton, her second husband. If you are a Lucy fan, this is good read.

    I loved every minute of this book. I've always been a fan of Lucy, but this book of her memoirs will help you feel like you know her . Hearing about her childhood all the way through until she marries her second husband. The in-between is nothing short of amazing!

    I’m a big I Love Lucy fan, so I enjoyed this autobiography. I recommend this audiobook narrated by her daughter. Lucy is upbeat, positive, and sees the virtues in almost every person who has had a part in her life. I didn’t like her word choice a lot of the time, nor her hopeless worldview. But I especially enjoyed learning about how she grew up and the events that shaped her life.

    There is so much more to Lucy than the funny, witty, memorable comedian. She was a regular woman with hopes, dreams, struggles, fears, and daily life just like any other woman in her era.
    Reading this book was a wonderful experience for me.

    Honestly, I couldn't even make it past the first chapter. I picked this up because of a decent review I read of it, but found the writing dull and uninspired, and I guess I'm not into Lucy enough to read it despite that... If you really love Lucy, then maybe. For me, a no-go.

    This was a choice of my book club--I voted against it. I never thought that the physical, pratfall comedy of Lucy was that great, and am not a fan of the show. However, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it (another reason to join a book club--I am often surprised at how much I enjoyed books that I would NEVER have read on my own). I loved the background of her childhood--those were interesting times. And she was one determined young women--continuing to work at anything to make it as an actress. I also admired her work ethic and loved learning how Lela Roger, Ginger's mother, mentored so many young actors at RKO--that kind of gem of information was very interesting.A good read even for non-Lucy fans!!
