Memoir About Phyllis Diller Now on Sale
Wigeon Publishing releases book
by "Diller Dustbiter" Robin Skone-Palmer
SAN DIEGO, Calif.Beyond the Spotlight: On the Road With Phyllis Diller is now on sale and available through booksellers nationwide.
In her new book, Robin Skone-Palmer recalls her days working as a personal secretary for the beloved, ground-breaking comedienne.
The author treats readers to a behind-the-scenes look at the life of a professional comedian, the travels and the traviailsand Diller's curious approach toward cooking.
During the time Skone-Palmer worked for Diller, they shared raucous laughter, mind-numbing boredom, and occasionally absolute terror. The work relationship became a friendship that lasted to the day of Diller's death last August.
After leaving Diller's employment, Skone-Palmer became one of the "Dustbiters," a term Diller coined to affectionately describe her favorite former employees.
Diller even endorsed the memoir (before she died), writing on one of those sticky notes she had so often used: Robin Skone-Palmer has written a bookit is FABULOUS!
Diller's son Perry says:
I laughed a lot. What a wonderful, insightful, bright observation of a another time and place. You are kind and fair. Thank you for your service to my mother.
Skone-Palmer now lives in Las Vegas with her two cats. She divides her time between golf, pottery, and teaching after-school Bible clubs. She also collects wineat least long enough to chill it before she pulls the cork.
