There's not a dull moment in this 300+ page recap of their life together. Unfortunately there is no eBook and it's apparently out of print in paper. I had to buy a used hardcover edition. Hopefully interest will pick up in reading about these two now that Antenna TV is rebroadcasting some of the episodes of The Burns and Allen Show. And you young folks out there who have never seen the show, do yourself a favor and tune in. They're wonderful together; she's a riot.
This is on my TBR list and near the top. I have not been able to find a review that wasn't glowing. I'm highly looking forward to this. I bought it at a library sale. After I read it, I'll pass it on to my mother who grew up in the days of radio.
