"A frothy collection of stories and gossip from the comedic actress....Names drop like snowflakes, glistening in the sunny terrain of this exuberant memoir." -- Kirkus Reviews "If I learned nothing else from my mom-and I learned quite a bit, though her sex tips left something to be desired, so to speak-it was this: `Life is hilarious-especially when it's not-because that's the only time it truly has to be.'" -- Carrie Fisher "Debbie Reynolds is one of our country's most gifted and original actresses . . . literally a force of nature." -- Carl Reiner "This book is just like Debbie-affectionate, unforgettable, and laugh-out-loud funny. I loved it and I love her." -- Mitzi Gaynor "These rich, often illuminating, anecdotes read much like a catalogue of the memorabilia that Reynolds sold off over the last few years. The stories not only augment the gaps left in Unsinkable but also act as an elegy to the ever-fading memories of Hollywood's golden era." -- Washington Post "Debbie is my favorite woman on earth - and again, I apologize for breaking her rib!" -- Roseanne Barr "Who knew Debbie Reynolds could take down a running back like me? Incidentally, I enjoyed it. She is great." -- Regis Philbin "Anyone who loves Hollywood and movies is bound to enjoy this lively, funny book, filled with candid recollections. Debbie was a movie-struck kid who experienced the last days of Hollywood's Golden Age, and I love her clear-eyed memories." -- Leonard Maltin "[Reynolds is] indisputably a grand dame of show business." -- NPR on UNSINKABLE "Lively." -- People on UNSINKABLE "Debbie Reynolds knows exactly how to steal the scene, wring tears, and most important, how to leave the audience feeling thoroughly entertained." -- New York Journal of Books on UNSINKABLE "Nothing could sink this lady." -- New York Post on UNSINKABLE
