With wit, candor and ebullience, actress-singer-comedienne Phyllis Newman blends Broadway magic, domestic comedy and the painful reality of a double mastectomy in a story of stardom and survival. "A compelling book...there is anger - real, screaming anger that gradually resolves itself into understanding...tempered as always by humor." -The New York Times Book Review

Product Details


Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In a sprightly vein, actress Newman breezes through an account of her life's joys and tribulations, putting a brave face on her bout with cancer and the infidelities of an otherwise compatible husband, Adolph Green. She records her professional triumphsBroadway Bound and a Tony Award for Subways Are for Sleeping , among othersand recalls with obvious relish the celebrities with whom she hobnobbed. Recruited from her parent's fortune-telling booth on Atlantic City's Steel Pier, six-year-old Baby Phyllis started performing in 1939 in a kiddie revue. The talent, perseverance and luck that helped the versatile entertainer land her first Broadway part in Wish You Were Here led to a career onstage and in cabarets, film and television. Newman candidly recounts the rage and depression that underlay a cheerful exterior after her double mastectomy and the efforts she made to regain her confidence and resume her career. Major ad/promo.

4.0 out of 5 stars A stirring, uplifting book! July 1 2004
Format:Paperback
Phyllis Newman has written a brave, vibrant and honest book. Her view of life and how she met the challenges of breast cancer is well worth sharing. That she happens to have some celebrity friends makes the story a little more interesting, but even if you'd never heard of her or her pals, this life-affirming tale is worth the time you'll spend reading it.
