Format: Hardcover
Eddie Fisher's singing career peaked in 1953 when he gave the world the million-selling single "Oh, My Papa." His public life peaked in 1981, when he gave the world "Eddie: My Life, My Loves." his autobiography. For anyone who missed the years in between, there was Eddie and Debbie (Reynolds), then Eddie and Debbie and Liz (Taylor), and then Eddie and Liz and Richard (Burton), and then Eddie and Connie (Stevens). And always, Eddie and broads,broads, broads, including, he says, but surely not limited to, Marlene Dietrich, Judy Garland, Ann-Margret, and Merle Oberon.

Seems to me Eddie would have been better advised to let somebody else do this recital. Heartfelt is heartfelt, but kiss and tell books should be cheerful. This one, in Eddie's hands, is mawkish, lugubrious California hot tub mush. Was Fisher ever really the poor, hard-edged South Philly kid he claims to have been? He sure goes on, at discouraging length, about hawking veggies, lice, and cardboard in his shoes. And for heaven's sake, if his mother really did call him "Sonny Boy," do we really have to hear her doing it nearly every paragraph?

However, Fisher was a poor Jewish kid with a big voice. He made good, struck up acquaintances with a dizzying number of women, got himself addicted first to speed and then to coke, went bankrupt, wrote this book. I hope it at least made him some money. There's really only one last thing to say about it: if you liked "Oh My Papa," you don't want to miss this.

Great insight into a big star's every day life. Very well written... no non-essential filler mish mash. Eddie Fisher was a much
bigger star than I had known. Frank Sinatra even asked Eddie Fisher to fill in for him on occassion...and the audiences did not
request their money back. He was B I G.

Eddie Fisher writes a rather limp book. If he didn't name drop and kiss and tell there would be very little story to tell. He has quickly been forgotten in Hollywood. The main reason I picked this book to read was to see what he said about Debbie Reynolds,Elizabeth Taylor and Connie Stevens.Since it was all pretty bad, I will forget it promptly.
