Bette Midler, also known as Divine Miss M--the indomitable and incomparable singer, actor, and musical theater extraordinaire, with a career spanning almost half a century--revisits her classic memoir, now with a new introduction. 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.
