This Time Together : Laughter and Reflection by Carol Burnett

Fans of Carol Burnett will be delighted by her wonderful stories about the famous and not so famous people she has met in her life.  Told through short vignettes, she relays things about her childhood, personal life and career that she has never shared in print before.  Many of the stories came up in her talks with the audience before her weekly television shows and tours.  She is a star of stage, screen, and television but never seems to act that she is truly a star in her own right.

She has intimately known and worked with people like: Jimmy Stewart, Gary Grant, Beverly Sills, Julie Andrew and Lucille Ball, but Carol Burnett is totally down to earth and displays that she is as much of a fan as the reader. Her writing makes you feel like you are sitting at the kitchen table having a cup of coffee together.  Her stories are told from the heart and vary from extremely funny to totally ironic.  It is a quick read great for late night reading or a weekend away. It was extremely interesting to hear about some of Hollywood’s greatest stars. The book was a quick enjoyable read.  As a long time fan of Carol Burnett I loved every moment!
