    This review is from: I Had a Ball: My Friendship with Lucille Ball (Paperback)

    I finished your book and just had to write and say what a pleasure it was reading it. I was born in 1971 but grew up watching Lucy reruns and always felt a connection with her. I’ve read so much about her and seen most of her appearances too.

    I grew up in a small town in MA and always imagined meeting Lucy in person and getting to know her. After reading this book I feel like in some small way I did.:)

    I’ve read other books by friends of Lucy and enjoyed them but this one felt just a bit more personal and from the heart. I was able to get a signed picture of Lucy years and years ago and I still treasure it.

    Sincerely,

    Eric Dooley

    Such an enjoyable book! A wonderful first-hand account of all things “Lucy”. I loved the behind the scenes detail and could feel the obvious affection Michael and Lucy had for one another. A must-read for any fan!
