Valerie Harper is finally ready to tell her story. In I,
Rhoda (Gallery Books, $26),
her first memoir, the beloved and award-winning television actress reflects on
the role that made her famous—Rhoda Morgenstern on the groundbreaking series The
Mary Tyler Moore Show and on the spin-off show Rhoda—and the
pressures of helming her own sitcom, Valerie. From her childhood in New
Jersey and upstate New York to the beginnings of her acting career as a dancer
and chorus girl on Broadway—performing alongside stars like Lucille Ball and
Jackie Gleason—to her recent battle with lung cancer, Valerie shares the story
of her life, both the highs and the lows, in this heartwarming memoir, filled
with charming anecdotes about Betty, Lucy, and Mary, to name a few.
As Mary Richards’s lovable and self-deprecating best friend Rhoda Morgenstern on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Valerie Harper, too, turned the world on with her smile. Viewers could relate to Rhoda, native New Yorker and struggling working girl, who was unlucky in love and insecure about her weight but who always kept her sense of humor.
