Main description:

The New York Times bestselling memoir from legendary comedienne Carol Burnett is a “loving, poignant” (People) tribute to her eldest daughter, Carrie Hamilton.

Carrie Hamilton was an extraordinary young woman. The daughter of one of TV’s most recognizable and beloved stars, Carol Burnett, Carrie won the hearts of everyone she met with her kindness, quirky sense of humor, and wonderfully unconventional approach to life. Despite her personal struggles as a teenager, Carrie went on to become a very successful actress, singer, writer, and director, known for her beautiful smile, free spirit, and open heart. Carrie’s passion for life and her humorist’s view of the world never wavered as she aggressively battled cancer. Carrie died at the age of thirty-eight.

Carrie and Me is Carol Burnett’s tribute to her late daughter and a funny and moving memoir about mothering a remarkable young woman through the struggles and triumphs of her life. Even as Carrie struggled with disease, she continued to approach life with relentless passion and wit: “Every day I wake up and decide: Today I’m going to love my life.” Sharing her personal diary entries, photographs, and correspondence, Carol traces the journey she and Carrie took through some of life’s toughest challenges and sweetest miracles. She reveals the depths of her grief over losing her child, the depression that almost got the best of her, the solace she took from Carrie’s friends, the hope she found when she was able to bring the play Hollywood Arms to Broadway, and the inspiration she finds in her daughter’s legacy.

“Hauntingly beautiful and heartfelt” (FoxNews.com), Carrie and Me is a story of hope and joy that only a mother could write, celebrating her treasured daughter’s humor, grace, and eternal optimism.
