Not everyone will find Marshall a role model. She smokes too much (and suffers the consequences) and definitely isn’t a “choir girl.” But she is brutally honest and that makes her memoir a refreshing read.
Life isn’t all candy and nuts.
Fans of Penny Marshall will undoubtedly enjoy her many stories about “Laverne & Shirley.” For those who loved “A League of Their Own,” there is plenty of background information as well. The only thing missing is a lot about Cooperstown and that is a shame. It’s almost as disappointing as not seeing my friends and me in the opening credits.
