Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A remarkable memoir by one of the most popular and beloved entertainers of the twentieth century

When in the mid-1950s Andy Williams reached a low point in his career, singing in dives to ever-smaller audiences, the young man from Wall Lake, Iowa, had no inkling of the success he would one day achieve. Before being declared a national treasure by President Ronald Reagan, Williams would chart eighteen gold and three platinum albums, headline at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for more than twenty years, and host an enormously popular weekly television variety show whose Christmas specials still occupy a tender spot in every baby boomer's heart.

Williams knew everybody who was anybody during his seven remarkable decades in show business (including Judy Garland, John Huston, Jack Lemmon, John Lennon, Elton John, Frank Sinatra, Elvis, and Barbra Streisand, among others) and was a close friend of Bobby Kennedy for many years, and he shares memories of them all in Moon River and Me. His millions of fans guarantee a huge audience for the autobiography of the plush baritone who- at the age of eighty-one-still draws thousands of fans to his Moon River Theater in Branson, Missouri.

Synopsis:

From the man whom President Ronald Reagan declared a national treasure comes "Moon River and Me," a book in which Williams shares the memories of his seven remarkable decades in show business. b&w photo inserts.

Synopsis:

The New York Times bestselling memoir by "a national treasure" (Ronald Reagan) and one of the twentieth century's most popular and beloved entertainers.

The King of Hearts, The Emperor of Easy, Mr. Moon River-Andy Williams was known by many names, but his was the One Voice that defined the 1960's for most of America, as his plush tenor sold millions of records and his television variety show and Christmas specials made him a superstar.

In his long-awaited autobiography, Williams shares the remarkable story of his rise from humble beginnings through his seven-plus decades in show business, including his friendships with everyone from Bobby Kennedy to John Lennon and Marilyn Monroe to Oprah. Moon River and Me is a delightful self-portrait of a remarkable artist and a fascinating history of American entertainment's golden age.
