Forty years ago, when Susan Lucci first joined the cast of one of America's best loved soaps, "All My Children", she had only expected to appear on the show every other Tuesday. But she quickly endeared herself to America playing the beautiful, mercurial, and often controversial character of Erica Kane. All this time, Lucci has held viewers' rapt attention as Erica underwent the first daytime television abortion, married and divorced more times than Elizabeth Taylor, became one of daytime's first working mothers, dealt with her AMC daughter's coming out and survived many of life's greatest tragedies as well as conducted many of TV's most fun-to-watch escapades. The secret to Erica's appeal is undoubtedly her ability to live life and reinvent herself in ways that the audience wishes they could too. Now in her long-awaited autobiography, Susan Lucci not only shares some of her favorite behind-the scenes moments on the show, she shares stories about her own personal metamorphosis off-camera, from an aspiring actress to a superstar. For the first time ever, she candidly opens up about the devastating car accident that could have cost her career and the heartache she endured after her miscarriage. She reveals the life lessons longtime friends taught her on her rise to fame, the secret to remaining youthful and what she has learned about love, romance, and partnership through a marriage that has spanned four decades. She also recalls the great joy that came with finally winning an Emmy in 1999 after eighteen previous nominations as well as the pressure and angst she felt before her epic win, the pleasure of taking Broadway by storm in "Annie Get Your Gun" and the test of her stamina and endurance that came with cha-cha-ing on prime time in "Dancing with the Stars". Susan will also share how she has successfully balanced the needs of her family with the grueling demands of her career. Nicknamed 'LaLucci' by her nightclub co-star Regis Philbin and named one of Barbara Walters' "Ten Most Fascinating People", Susan Lucci gives readers a rare and intimate look into life as a wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, singer, entrepreneur, seductive sensation, and iconic actress in what is destined to be the most uplifting memoir of year!
