My Name is Izzy
Izzy Covalt. Strawberry Hill Press: 1999.
Izzy Covalt is the founder of Izzy’s Pizza, a local & Northwest chain. Her autobiography has a straightforward and personal style.
Born during the Depression on a North Washington farm, her life as a child was tough. Although her life gradually improved, largely through her own determination, she still had to deal with a bad marriage decision, the death of her second husband, and a long fight with alcoholism.
Having met Izzy in 2000, I was struck by her shyness and apparent insecurity – her book concentrates more on her toughness.
