Interview with Bill Jankowski, who worked with Anna "Patty" Duke to document her experiences and observations working with greats from film, stage and TV. Duke shared her talents with audiences, earning an Oscar & pre-TONY for her performances in The Miracle Worker, and of course made all sorts of TV Herstory with her iconic series, The Patty Duke Show.

We discuss her thoughts on famous people she worked with as well as mending regrettable moments and fractured relationships that occurred during manic bipolar phases, prior to her diagnosis. Bill gives backstory to the book's Gloria Vanderbilt foreward and how he brought her final thoughts to print following her untimely death at 69 in 2016.
