Lee Tannen Book, I Loved Lucy Available
As reported from Oldies.com, Lee Tannen's 240 page book "I Loved Lucy: My Friendship with Lucille Ball", 2007, is available for $4.95!
True Lucy fans call the 1980s "the lost Lucy years" - the last decade of Lucy's life, when she was mostly out of the spotlight, trying to live a private life. It was then that she made one of the best friends she ever had - Lee Tannen, a distant relative of her husband Gary Morton, who was an integral part of Lucy's life until her death in 1989.
Now for the first time, Tannen paints a rich portrait of the real woman behind the legend, revealing how she differed from her zany on-screen persona and yet in many ways matched it precisely. Warm and funny, autocratic and mercurial, maddening and irresistible - that was all Lucy and she's all here on every page.
