Description
"This indelible romance begins with a daring conceit--that the author's grandfather may have had an affair with Lucille Ball. Strauss offers a fresh view of a celebrity America loved more than any other. Lucille Ball--the most powerful woman in the history of Hollywood--starred in America's first big-time interracial marriage. She owned more movie sets than did any movie studio. And she more or less single-handedly created the modern tv business. And yet Lucille's off-camera life was in disarray. While acting out a happy marriage for millions, in private she suffered. Her partner couldn't stay faithful. She struggled to manage her fame with the demands of being a mother, a creative genius, an entrepreneur, and, most of all, a symbol. The Queen of Tuesday--Strauss's follow-up to the NBCC-winning Half a Life--mixes fact and fiction, memoir and novel, to imagine the provocative story of a woman we thought we knew."--
