I Love Lucy's Lucy and Ethel are TV's original BFFs. This celebration of their friendship is the perfect way to share the laughter, joy, and love of best girlfriends. Everybody loves Lucy. And nothing has been more enduring, from the 180 episodes of I Love Lucy that ran from 1951 to 1957 and have never been off the air since, than Lucy Ricardo's deep friendship with Ethel Mertz. Usually finding themselves in zany, hysterical situations, these best friends have always come through it (even with chocolate all over their faces) together. This book celebrates Lucy and Ethel's friendship, by illustrating, through images and text, not only it's timelessness, but universality. "I Love Lucy": The Joys of Friendship features more than fifty hilarious images of Lucy and Ethel paired with quotes from the show, "Well, of course, I'll need the help of a very loyal friend"; "Good friends are worth more than the price of a television set"; "What's wrong with good friends harmonizing a little? That's what the world needs more of"; and affirmations such as True friendship knows no distance, The only thing better than a good friend is a good friend and chocolate, and We can always make each other laugh.

If you loved I Love Lucy and then watched The Nanny it would be difficult not to see the same kind of humor in both shows. This book describes how Fran Drescher was a huge fan of Lucille Ball and would even perform with the same kind of humor. She even uses several of Lucy's lines on The Nanny.Project Webster represents a new publishing paradigm, allowing disparate content sources to be curated into cohesive, relevant, and informative books.

I Love Lucy and "Mad Men" are both iconic television shows that mirror a specific decade in time. Both productions expose the role of women in society. One in 1950s America, one in 1960s America. How did the referenced culture and political climate influence the decisions creators made to explain their point of view? Does art imitate life or does life imitate art? Author Mark Mussari takes readers on a journey from the beginnings of television, when families sat in the living room and watched the one television set they might be lucky to own, to the present, where an increasing number watch television on iPhones or on DVRs rather than in real time. This record of the ever-changing world of American culture is highlighted with a fabulous variety of photographs from the last six decades.

The form is so elemental, so basic, that we have difficulty imagining a time before it existed: a single set, fixed cameras, canned laughter, zany sidekicks, quirky family antics. Obsessively watched and critically ignored, sitcoms were a distraction, a gentle lullaby of a kinder, gentler America—until suddenly the artificial boundary between the world and television entertainment collapsed. In this book we can watch the growth of the sitcom, following the path that leads from Lucy to The Phil Silvers Show; from The Dick Van Dyke Show to The Mary Tyler Moore Show; from M*A*S*H to Taxi; from Cheers to Roseanne; from Seinfeld to Curb Your Enthusiasm; and from The Larry Sanders Show to 30 Rock. Each sitcom episode is a self-enclosed world, a brief overturning of the established order of its universe before returning to the precise spot from which it had begun. In twenty-four episodes, Sitcom surveys the history of the form, and functions as both a TV mixtape of fondly remembered shows that will guide us to notable series and larger trends, and a carefully curated guided tour through the history of one of our most treasured art forms. Saul Austerlitz is the author of Another Fine Mess: A History of the American Film Comedy, named by Booklist as one of the ten best arts books of 2010, and Money for Nothing: A History of the Music Video from the Beatles to the White Stripes. His work has been published in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe, Slate, and elsewhere.

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The one and only autobiography by the iconic Lucille Ball, hailed by TV Guide as the “#1 Greatest TV Star of All Time.” Love, Lucy is the valentine Lucille Ball left for her fans—a warm, wise, and witty memoir written by Lucy herself. The legendary star of the classic sitcom I Love Lucy was at the pinnacle of her success when she sat down to record the story of her life. No comedienne had made America laugh so hard, no television actress had made the leap from radio and B movies to become one of the world's best-loved performers. This is her story—in her own words. The story of the ingenue from Jamestown, New York, determined to go to Broadway, destined to make a big splash, bound to marry her Valentino, Desi Arnaz. In her own inimitable style, she tells of their life together—both storybook and turbulent; intimate memories of their children and friends; wonderful backstage anecdotes; the empire they founded; the dissolution of their marriage. And, with a heartfelt happy ending, her enduring marriage to Gary Morton. Here is the lost manuscript that her fans and loved ones will treasure. Here is the laughter. Here is the life. Here’s Lucy... “The comic actress in her own words...intensley moving.”—San Francisco Chronicle “Filled with light and laughter.”—New York Times Book Review

The Unsinkable Lucy

The Unsinkable Lucy

The author's aspiration for writing this book was that it be used by either the family or the classroom as a teaching tool to openly discuss the various emotional ups and downs all children have at one time or another in their lives.

A local reading resource specialist determined that the reading level for The Unsinkable Lucy would be suitable for children in the higher third grade to lower fourth grade reading levels. Lucy's struggles with life are equal to that of us humans. The story is about how a miniature poodle named Lucy copes with the disappearances (i.e. deaths) of her first owners that occurred three years apart. She shows the reader her journey of survival through the many changes she experiences in her young life. Lucy's book can be considered a "concept" story that unfolds through the thoughts and feelings of Lucy while she tries to grasp life through a wide range of emotions that go from love, happiness, loneliness, grief, anger, self-pity, fear, frustration, and eventually, all the way back to love and happiness. The author's aspiration for writing this book was that it be used by either the family or the classroom as a teaching tool to openly discuss the various emotional ups and downs all children have at one time or another in their lives. The word "unsinkable" was chosen because nothing, but nothing, could make Lucy continue a life of self pity; instead, she went forward, looking around each corner for a better way of life and she eventually found it! We love Lucy and we hope you do, too.

Here from the most prolific biographers in show biz comes an unvarnished overview of the tormented married couple who transformed the manic eccentricities of LUCY into one of the most profitable icons of the Atomic Age.
