characters This Time Together

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. Those on the hunt for Burnett s autobiography should seek out the title One More Time This small volume is a series of anecdotes inspired by the popular uestion and answer sessions you may recall her once conducting to open her variety show In it she shares a wide range of incidents and interactions she found both amusing and surprising She possesses a terrific sense for this kind of thing and the skill to carry it off as a literary enterpriseWhat most intrigued me here though was the subtle introduction of Carol Burnett as a human being It s easy to imagine we know this woman as the gracious and greatly talented comedienne we ve seen on screen for decades Her effortless charm Her welcoming demeanor Her genuine desire to tickle a smile from every guest in the house Why it should astonish me that there were people she didn t like behaviors that irritated her and efforts she simply didn t wish to makewell this speaks of my predilection to toss the talented atop pedestals than it does anything elseThrough the course of her storytelling Ms Burnett clambers down from those lofty heights dusts herself off takes a seat and settles in to chat authentically And I am I think in several ways better for it

This Time Together

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 laug. Fluffy Audio Candy Lovely little inside look at historic Hollywood almost like listening to your grandmother tell tales from her youth if your grandmother was a Hollywood iconI d never actually watched or seen Carol Burnett in movies or TV until I looked up some old clips after finishing the book Not something I d normally gravitate to this was a bookclub pick and ended up being better than expectedWarm hearted and pleasant this book is an enjoyable listen as Carol reads it herself I know 110% I would not have enjoyed this as much reading it as I wouldn t have gotten to hear her trademark Tarzan yell or felt the emotion in her voice as she discussed the death of her daughterOverall an enjoyable book but not much point other than to recount random incidents in Carol s life This felt like vignettes that weren t included in her I m assuming from the synopsis autobiographical 1986 book One More Time A MemoirI appreciated her candor uick wit and the tone and cadence of her delivery Not surprisingly this book was nominated for a 2011 Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word AlbumTL DR A book about the good old days not much substance

    Probably the best thing I can say about This Time Together is this I stopped reading for two days right before the end because I didn't want it to be over Like many people I grew up watching The Carol Burnett Show and I still count many moments of that show as some of the funniest I've ever seen on television How many TV programs make you laugh 'til you're breathless? Hers managed to do that all the time This memoir was
