Praise For Carrie and Me: A Mother-Daughter Love Story…
"Hauntingly beautiful and heartfelt."
"A poignant and, of course, funny look at a life cut too short."
"The worst thing for a parent is to outlive a child. The bravest thing a parent can do is to write a loving, funny memoir of her daughter who overcame teenage problems with drugs and living in a superstar parent's shadow to forge her own showbiz career before dying of cancer at 38."
"Carrie and Me is certainly a memorial, but it's more a celebration of [Carrie Hamilton's] life than a somber elegy . . . Affecting."
"With humor and poignancy, the celebrated comedian remembers her vivacious and sometimes troubled daughter."
"Inspiring . . . A fitting tribute."
“In a beautiful and poignant tribute to her late daughter, Carrie Hamilton, actress and comedienne Carol Burnett has written a funny and moving memoir about mothering an extraordinary young woman.”
“‘Carrie and Me’ serves as an inspirational piece that can aid any parent struggling with raising or losing a child.”
