I first read this book ~10 years ago after Dorothy Zbornak (aka Bea Arthur) mentioned it on an episode of the "Golden Girls." She recommended it to her Italian cousin, saying, "It's a hell of a book." I was intrigued - it sounded juicy, but more importantly, one does not just discard the opinion of one Dorothy Zbornak - so I ordered a used copy from Amazon, read it, and donated it to Goodwill years later not remembering much about it.

She didn't have much to say. She's a perfect size 5, so costuming is a breeze for her. If you want really nice teeth, she suggests you let the showerhead blast away at them for 5 minutes every morning.

She even includes a few knitting patterns to pad the covers.
Fascinating. Everyone has to tune in at seven. But it's more than turning the letters. I believe that Vanna is a good prototype for the future. In 1987 it was the best technology available, but soon it will be more than just speaking -- robots will move, walk, be no different from you and I. Best to get ready.
Listened to a book on tape of this. Actually interesting. She has sense of humor about herself and the two-dimensional nature of her job. Started to break down on the recording when recalling the death of her first husband - which is moving to hear from a person who always seems so composed.
This is a white-bread, mostly vanilla pseudo-memoir by the beautiful letter-person on Wheel of Fortune. I read it so long ago that I have little memory of specifics, so this is only a general impression. It is certainly better than her TV movie around the same time.
