Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround
them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the
history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge
Raymond Fogletree just became number five. His body was found in the basement
of a lakeside cabin he had built himself and frequently used on weekends. When he
did not show up for a trial on Monday morning, his law clerks panicked, called the
FBI, and in due course the agents found the crime scene. There was no forced entry,
no struggle, just two dead bodies--Judge Fogletree and his young secretary. I did
not know Judge Fogletree, but I know who killed him, and why. I am a lawyer, and I
am in prison. It's a long story.

Most people know Penny Marshall as the director of Big and A League of Their
Own. What they don’t know is her trailblazing career was a happy accident. In this
funny and intimate memoir, Penny takes us from the stage of The Jackie Gleason
Show in 1955 to Hollywood’s star-studded sets, offering up some hilarious detours
along the way.
My Mother Was Nuts is an intimate backstage pass to Penny’s personal life, her
breakout role on The Odd Couple, her exploits with Cindy Williams and John Belushi,
and her travels across Europe with Art Garfunkel on the back of a motorcycle. We see
Penny get married. And divorced. And married again (the second time to Rob Reiner).
We meet a young Carrie Fisher, whose close friendship with Penny has spanned
decades. And we see Penny at work with Tom Hanks, Mark Wahlberg, Whoopi
Goldberg, Robert De Niro, and Whitney Houston.
Throughout it all, from her childhood spent tap dancing in the Bronx, to her rise as
star of Laverne & Shirley, Penny lived by simple rules: “try hard, help your friends,
don’t get too crazy, and have fun.” With humor and heart, My Mother Was Nuts reveals
there’s no one else quite like Penny Marshall.
