Publisher's Summary

When Susan Lucci and All My Children were introduced to the world in 1971, American television changed forever. Susan's character, the beautiful, spirited, and mercurial Erica Kane, was an original. But while millions have enjoyed getting to know Erica's many sides, the woman who plays her has remained a mystery.
In her long-awaited memoir, this very private entertainment icon pulls back the curtain to reveal her own story. Warm, candid, and inviting, All My Life chronicles Susan's journey from her childhood to playing Erica Kane and from finding true love to living that "Cinderella moment" when she finally won her Emmy.
As charming, down-to-earth, and compelling as the woman whose story it tells, All My Life reminds us of the power of dreams and how we can all find the courage and tenacity to make them come true.
