With her brassy voice and bold performances making the world finally pay attention, she needs no introduction. Grammy award-winning singer, Academy Award-nominee, Broadway star of her critically acclaimed one-woman show and beloved actress in "The Rose," "Beaches and Down" and "Out in Beverly Hills"--Bette Midler is a household name whose career and fans span generations.
In "A View from a Broad," originally published in 1980, Bette relives her career through memories of endless rehearsals, her fear of flying, crazy schedules and wisdom she learned from Thai Gondoliers, with the trademark razor-blade wit that her fans have grown to know, love and expect.
Filled with photographs, a new introduction and heartwarming stories that highlight only a portion of a brilliant career, "A View from a Broad" is the perfect gift for anyone who loves music, theater or just plain fun--and will be cherished by the fans of Divine Miss M for years to come.
