More about this book:
From Publishers Weekly:Comedian Benny left behind his unpublished autobiography when he died at age 80 in 1974. Here, in what PW termed an entertaining and moving manner, he reveals the secrets of his tremendous appeal as his daughter supplements the text with accounts of the family's home life. According to PW , The daughter's sensibilities, at least as expressed here, contrast sharply with the father's bighearted outlook on life.

Joan's feeling for her mother, Mary Livingstone, could best be described as ambivalent, and her life (including three marriages) hasn't been perfect, but the love and admiration she feels for her father is apparent. By virtually all accounts Benny was a nice, pleasant man, and those same adjectives also apply to this book.
