Synopsis

A touching and hilarious memoir by the author of Carrie and Me: A Mother Daughter Love Story, This Time Together is 100 percent Carol Burnett – funny, irreverent, and irresistible.
 
Carol Burnett is one of the most beloved and revered actresses and performers in America. The Carol Burnett Show was seen each week by millions of adoring fans and won twenty-five Emmys in its remarkable eleven-year run. Now, in This Time Together, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another – reading it feels like sitting down with an old friend who has wonderful tales to tell.
 
In engaging anecdotes, Carol discusses her remarkable friendships with stars such at Jimmy Stewart, Lucille Ball, Cary Grant, and Julie Andrews; the background behind famous scenes, like the moment she swept down the stairs in her curtain-rod dress in the legendary “Went With the Wind” skit; and things that would happen only to Carol – the prank with Julie Andrews that went wrong in front of the First Lady; the famous Tarzan Yell that saved her during a mugging; and the time she faked a wooden leg to get served in a famous ice cream emporium. This poignant look back allows us to cry with the actress during her sorrows, rejoice in her successes, and finally, always, to laugh.

This Time Together- Laughter and Ref
December 17th, 2013
Carol Burnett, what can I say,she was one of my favorite comedians. Her comedy show was amazing and reading about what went on behind the scenes was very exciting. This book was well written and made you think about all the actors and comedians of that time, that era. Some laughs, some tears, if you like Carol Burnett you will enjoy this book.

I have always been a fan of Carol Burnett & loved her variety show. Although Tim Conway & Harvey Korman caused many tears of laughter Carol made it all possible. After reading this book I feel I know her much better and look forward to reading her other books.
