• “I read this book too quickly because I enjoyed it too much. If I have two regrets, they are that the book wasn’t long enough and that I didn’t write it.” —Maya Angelou

  • “Offers charmed glimpses of Tin Pan Alley and Broadway. Alexander describes her mother as cold and unattached and writes of her inability to express love to either her daughters or her husband. The book’s title, Happy Days, taken from one of her father’s most famous songs, ‘Happy Days Are Here Again’ is ironic ‘because my childhood was anything but,’ Alexander said.” —Publishers Weekly

  • Happy Days is an open theatrical trunk with a brilliant assortment of zany characters and gems of anecdotes spilling out.” —Gail Sheehy
