Exchange Exemplar: The Name "Swoosie" Explained By Its Owner
You've probably seen at least a few of Swoosie Kurtz's acting roles. She's been in so many things over the years, including TV roles in series that went beyond 100 episodes. Twice.
Her name alone makes her distinctive, a name shared with her pilot father's cobbled-together warplane in World War II: part swan, part goose. That explains the title of Swoosie's memoir, Part Swan, Part Goose: An Uncommon Memoir of Womanhood, Work, and Family. She joined us in 2015 for a delightful visit that we are delighted to revisit here.
