Bob's dearest and oldest friend, Carol Burnett, has been and remains to be one of the most revered and loved women of television. Not only has she entertained us with her multitude of characters and perfectly timed comedic routines, but she has let us in to her life. Carol Burnett has always spoken candidly about her personal struggles, including ones that she's faced with her eldest daughter, Carrie Hamilton. In her new book, "Carrie and Me: A Mother-Daughter Love Story," Carol touchingly honors the memory of her vivacious and artistic daughter. From tender memories of Carrie as a child, through her bout with drug addiction as a teen, her successes as an actor, musician, director, and writer, and all through her battle with cancer (which took her life at age 38), Carol poignantly recounts her time with her loving and enigmatic daughter. The complicated depth of the mother-daughter bond is celebrated in such an open and heartwarming manner that only Carol Burnett can convey. Touching, sweet, and thoroughly engaging, Carol Burnett reveals a vulnerability and a strength that stems from a mother's love which makes this memoir all the more endearing.
