Penny Marshall memoir

I finished reading Penny Marshall's memoir, My Mother was Nuts.   The book is full of hilarious stories and some very poignant moments.   She is a great story teller and enjoys reliving the many moments in her television and movie making career.   Her book relives highlights of  her childhood and her relationships with her family.    If you enjoy reading about Hollywood and a true take on the how movies and TV shows are made then I can highly recommend this book.  It was absolutely enjoyable getting a backstage view of the Laverne and Shirley show as well as many of her movies she made through the years.   She has an amazing group of A list friends and many humorous stories to share about the memories she made with them.   

All in all this is a very good memoir that has you laughing as well as feeling a wide range of emotions.

My Mother Was NutsMy Mother Was Nuts by Penny Marshall
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This memoir was an amazing combination of comedy and heartfelt honesty. Penny wrote a memoir that reads like a who's who of Hollywood royalty. The memoir was an interesting combination of family memories and the background stories of the movies she has been involved in over the years.
If you don't want to read about Hollywood partying you might want to pass on this book otherwise I can highly recommend this book
