About the Book

'Easily the year's best Hollywood biog.'
Independent on Sunday

'Ball Of Fire reveals all about house- wife superstar Lucille Ball. She made the top-rated TV show in America before her husband's serial adulteries practically sunk it.
Sunday Herald

'A wonderful and poignant book... Kanfer portrays Lucille Ball as insatiably anxious and insecure, a woman whose search for a father figure would only ever find the unlikely and unholdable Desi... Kanfer pulls no punches over Lucy the pain in the neck, but he gives a superb picture of how she and Desi changed television.
