Although countless books and articles have been written about Lucille Ball, most people know only the surface details of her personal life and some basic facts about her popular television series. Authors James Sheridan and Barry Monush take us beyond the “Lucy” character to give readers information that might not be common knowledge about one of the world's most beloved entertainers.
