Facts of My Life

Facts of My Life

By Charlotte Rae and Larry Strauss


“It’s about time a book came out about one of the most talented and beloved performers in the American theater. Charlotte is the consummate actress, comedienne, entertainer. Her work on stage and screen is always hilarious and somehow also gets you right in the gut. Her story is every bit as brilliant. Read it and smile.” -Comedy Legend, Carl Reiner


“To think of Charlotte Rae is to smile. Consequently, when I began to read The Facts of My Life, I was unprepared for the emotional impact it would have on me. By the time I finished the first chapter, dealing as it does with her severely troubled son Andy, I was in tears. As an old friend of Charlotte’s, I thought I knew her fairly well. But as I read on, I discovered that the ‘facts of her life’ were constantly surprising (as well as amusing and engrossing)! There is so much that I don’t know about Charlotte and so much that I now want to know, when the book is finally completed and published, I’ll be first in line to get my copy!” -Sheldon Harnick (Composer, Fiddler on the Roof)


Charlotte Rae’s career spans more than seventy years, from the golden age of television to Shakespeare in the Park, the New York Cabaret scene of the late 1940’s and 50’s to her hit series, The Facts of Life and well beyond. Off stage and screen, Charlotte’s life has been one of joy and challenge, raising an autistic son, coming to terms with alcoholism, the heartache of a broken marriage, the revelation of a gay husband and the sudden challenge of facing middle-age with financial and emotional uncertainties—a crisis she ultimately turned into the determination that brought her stardom. The Facts of My Life is the first opportunity for Charlotte fans to explore the fascinating story of her extraordinary life: poignant and hilarious, a story of courage and triumph, one that speaks for a generation of women breaking barriers, taking on challenges, overcoming personal tragedy, and paving the way for others.
