Doris Day: No Goody Two shoes
Doris ‘Kappy’ Day became one of the world’s most popular entertainers as a singer, actress and movie star. By the 50s, her on screen persona epitomized the all-American middle aged girl, next door, matching that of Marilyn Monroe as a 20th century icon. Her true story was far removed from the cheerful life she depicted on-screen and now Mary Anne Barothy has written a beautiful biography of Doris Day. Day at a time published by Hawthorne Publishing which is available this month.
