"This is a love letter (with lots of postage due) to my television husband, Ralph Kramden (a.k.a. Jackie Gleason) in recollection of grand, rare, nusty days and nights when "The Honeymooners" was America's Saturday night ritual. For years, I shared a television life with a man and enjoyed the fiction of being married to him before millions of people. "He made us all run faster, reach higher, go further than we ever dreamed we could. It was a great race, Jackie!" In 1952, a young actress named Audrey Meadows took a chance in leaving a successful Broadway show to join a fledgling television series headlined by a brash new comic named Jackie Gleason. "The Honeymooners" would make television history and turn its cast into household names. In this warm, engaging, frequently hilarious memoir, Audrey Meadows recalls the years she spent playing Alice Kramden opposite Jackie Gleason's Ralph. Love, Alice is full of anecdotes of Gleason's inspired, sometimes alarming antics, as well as personal stories of their fellow Honeymooners, Art Carney and Joyce Randolph. It captures the essence of Gleason, the high spirits of New York in the fifties, and all the excitement of the Golden Age of Television.
