Cicely Tyson Published Her Memoir On Tuesday, Now It’s Number 1: See Her Interview with Gayle King


Well, this is something:

Cicely Tyson published her memoir on Tuesday, three days ago, and was interviewed by Gayle King for CBS This Morning.

Two days after publication, she died. The book, “Just as I Am,” has zoomed to number 1 on amazon and is totally sold out! What the heck?

Miss Tyson has left the stage with a bang, not a whimper. Wow. She finished the book, did the publicity, and went to heaven. What a way to go!

Here’s the interview with Gayle King, who has had more scoops in the last year than a Baskin Robbins server!
