Carne, the English actress who became famous as the butt of practical jokes on TV's Laugh-In , tells her own show business saga with verve and style. Carne is candid about her numerous love affairs, her first marriage to Burt Reynolds (he beat her, she says), and her escalating drug abuse after Laugh-In ended. Her recent years have been one disaster after another, with a second husband who was after money and drugs, repeated highly publicized drug busts after she'd been through detox, and a near-fatal car accident that left her with a long, painful recuperation from a broken neck. Carne hopes that her life is together at last. Outrageous at times, but very entertaining. Marcia L. Perry, Berkshire Athenaeum, Pittsfield, Mass.
