The New York Times bestselling memoir from legendary comedienne Carol Burnett is a “loving, poignant” (People) tribute to her eldest daughter, Carrie Hamilton.
The daughter of one of television’s most recognizable and beloved stars, Carol Burnett, Carrie Hamilton won the hearts of everyone she met with her kindness, her quirky humor, and her unconventional approach to life. After overcoming her painful and public teenage struggle with drug addiction in a time when personal troubles were kept private, Carrie lived her adult life of sobriety to the fullest, achieving happiness and success as an actress, writer, musician, and director before losing a hard-fought battle with cancer at age thirty-eight. Now Carol Burnett shares her personal diary entries, photographs, and correspondence as she traces the journey she and Carrie took through some of life’s toughest challenges and sweetest miracles. Authentic, intimate, and full of love, Carrie and Me is a funny and moving memoir about mothering an extraordinary young woman through the struggles and triumphs of her life.

Carrie and more
Such a sad yet inspirational bond between mother and daughter in the Entertainment world. As well as their private world. And the trials and tribulations they met and faced in their daily lives.
Very much recommend reading this book!!
This book is wonderful. It's sad but great. The second half of the book is Carrie's book Sunrise in Memphis. It's so good. It's a treat to see what a wonderful person Carrie was and what a talented singer/songwriter and author she was. I couldn't put down. Read it in one night & then got the audiobook so I could listen to it on the way to school. If you love Carol Burnett, this book is a must have!
