Don Knotts. An icon of TV for decades, he brought laughter into homes worldwide as Deputy Barney Fife on The Andy Griffith Show and Mr. Furley on Three’s Company. In his TV appearances and film roles, Knotts delivered humor that resonated with generations of fans. His work is still praised and enjoyed today.

In her biography about his life, Tied Up in Knotts, his daughter Karen Knotts celebrates Don Knotts as both a performer and a father.  Through interviews with friends, family, and colleagues, we get a fuller picture of who Don Knotts was when he wasn’t playing a character on camera.

There are plenty of interesting and surprising things about Don that I never knew, and throughout the book, there’s a lot to explore about this man’s life.  

If you are a fan of Don Knotts or classic films and TV, I highly recommend this book.
