book is quite old (1986) but still --- Burnett is a favorite, and it's interesting learning about her childhood and early life.

Lots of humor, even in the circumstances of living with an alcoholic mother and primarily being raised by her grandmother. Interesting to see how driven she was to succeed, her determination, how she got her start. Makes me want to go back and watch some old episodes, or some of Mama's Family, to see how autobiographical some of those skits were.

Definitely will seek out her other book, which covers more of her life after she became a household name.

Kris Sounds like a good book. I knew she had a tough life - seems like a lot of comedians do.
