Carol Burnett’s new memoir Carrie and Me: A Mother-Daughter Love Story comes out this week and is now available as hardcover, Kindle, and audiobook. In the book, Burnett recounts her experience of motherhood in the televised comedy spotlight. Her daughter Carrie won over Burnett’s audience with kindness and charm but struggled with personal issues and addiction. Burnett and her daughter went public with Carrie’s addiction and her eventual recovery, and the girl acheived success in adulthood, but after battling with cancer Carrie died in 2002 at the age of 38. Burnett’s touching tribute to her daughter is an opportunity to read a talented and celebrated comedian being serious about a tragic life story.
