No hi ha cap discussió a Converses sobre aquesta obra.
This was one of my mother's books. I thought it would be interesting, but it was dry and repetitive. I do not doubt that Gracie was a lovely woman and the love of George's life, but her life was boring. First book in a long time that I have elected not to finish. ( )
Touching. And hilarious. But George Burns' books should be spaced out for maximum enjoyment.
Loved this and the other George books..got a copy tonight at work and giving it another go..
Easy, pleasant read.
I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it wasn't quite what I expected. I remember George Burns as a cigar-smoking, joke-cracking television star. I knew he'd been in radio when he started out. I didn't expect him to downplay his talents so much, but in the end, the book is a loving husband's tribute to his beloved wife who also happened to be his work partner for many years.
A memoir of his life, career and marriage with Gracie Allen Burns, George Burns has filled these pages with love. It is a delightful recounting of their life together, how they met, how they worked together, the various types of performing they did, and how it ended in her death by heart failure. I found the descriptions of working in vaudeville, on Broadway, in radio, TV and the movies very interesting. Many entertainer's names are mentioned, and with the help of YouTube and Google I was able to look up the ones I didn't know. If you enjoy reading about celebrities, or lasting marriage, or early Hollywood, radio and TV, I think you will enjoy this. There were a few redundant passages, but usually with enough humor that it wasn't tiresome.

Here is one of America's most beloved comedians remembering the woman he loved best and the extraordinary life they shared together.
