The Comic DNA of Lucille Ball
Fifty-five years ago, a sitcom called "I Love Lucy" transformed the television landscape and made its leading lady, Lucille Ball, a superstar. No one could have known that Ball, formerly a showgirl, B-movie queen, and radio actress, would become one of the world's most beloved performers, and take her place in a rare pantheon reserved for the likes of Elvis, Marilyn, and Chaplin. This book, by acclaimed Lucy author Michael Karol-"Lucy A to Z: The Lucille Ball Encyclopedia," "The Lucille Ball Quiz Book," "Lucy in Print"-examines Ball's impact and dissects what it was, and is, that makes Lucy not only an icon of laughter, but a powerful tonic in a troubled world.
