The rags to riches story of Sophie Tucker, an iconic superstar who ruled the worlds of vaudeville, Broadway, radio, television and Hollywood throughout the 20th century. Tucker, known as "The Last of the Red Hot Mamas," was the first woman to infatuate her audiences with a bold, bawdy and brassy style unlike any other.

Using all of Tucker's 400-plus recently rediscovered personal scrapbooks, authors Susan and Lloyd Ecker retrace Tucker's 60-year career in show business.
