Publisher's Summary

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 18 gold and three platinum albums, headline at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for more than 20 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. 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 81 - still draws thousands of fans to his Moon River Theater in Branson, Missouri.

Read by Andy Himself

WOW. This book took me back to Sunday nights long ago waiting for Andy and his guests to entertain me. I miss the entertainment of the variety shows. The icing on the cake is hearing it in Andy's own voice.
