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.
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.
