Carlotta Monti is persona non grata among the Fields faithful. She is typically portrayed by the Fields family as a lying gold digger (as if old man Fields didn't have his own very human agenda for wanting the company of a young, attractive live-in Latina). But Monti comes off as personable in this memoir, and I trust her as much as anyone; after all, the lady WAS THERE, and all the complainers weren't. She was there for 14 years! There are many wonderful details relating to Fields' daily habits ...more

Carlotta Monti's book gives a good idea what W. C. Field's character was like. Ms. Monti was a patient and flexible woman who was good to the man if her account is accurate, and I believe it was. In the end, she wasn't shown much gratitude.

How can any book about W.C Fields not be at least mildly entertaining?
