Great great book. Desi Arnaz writes surprisingly well about his life. You can almost hear him speaking. He talks about his life in Cuba as a young boy, his family life, what it was like coming to the United States as a young man and trying just to survive. It was so interesting that I didn't even care whether or not he talked about life with Lucille Ball. And yet he did talk about that life. No tearing down. No bitterness. He spoke very well about her and explained why the break-up. Very refreshing not to hear nasty gossip. Highly recommend this book.
