Ball of Fire: The Tumultuous Life and Comic Art of Lucille Ball

Stefan Kanfer

Publisher: Vintage BooksFormat: Paperback

As a movie actress Lucille Ball was, in her own words, “ queen of the B-pluses.” But on the small screen she was a superstar- arguably the funniest and most enduring in the history of TV. In this exemplary biography, Stefan Kanfer explores the roots of Lucy's genius and places it in the context of her conflicted and sometimes bitter personal life.Ball of Fire gives us Lucy in all her contradictions. Here is the beauty who became a master of knock-down slapstick; the control freak whose comic alter ego thrived on chaos, the worshipful TV housewife whose real marriage ended in public disaster. Here, too, is an intimate view of the dawn of television and of the America that embraced it. Charming, informative, touching. and laugh-out-loud funny, this is the book Lucy's fans have been waiting for.
