"If I don't do this, if I don't tell these stories, they could actually disappear."—Author Whoopi Goldberg

Entertainer Whoopi Goldberg's raspy timbre and amused tone make her the only person who could narrate her memoir. She weaves stories of her career skillfully into anecdotes featuring her exceptional and resilient mother, Emma Johnson, and her unique older brother, Clyde. Born Caryn Johnson, she offers up memories of her family life, and her performance is entirely professional, loving and varied, serious one moment and funny the next. Whoopi and her family will remain in listener's thoughts after hearing this singular memoir and performance.
