really liked it

I was excited to read this book because I remember loving "That Girl" and "Make Room For Daddy" and all the old comedians of that long ago era. It was an interesting read, although I found myself hoping the Marlo Thomas would "get real", which, sadly, she never did. I really wasn't looking for dirt, I'm just tired of people painting their lives with a brush of perfection. I do realize that she did not want to trash her family, and I appreciate that. The book was interesting and thoughtful with interviews with many current comedians and stories of growing up in a showbiz family surrounded by so many funny people. Enjoyable.
