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.
