BEING HENRY The Fonz . . . and Beyond

by | Read by Henry Winkler

Biography & Memoir • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Henry Winkler is clearly delighted to tell his own story. He learned to live with dyslexia; understand his odd, strict parents; and succeed at doing what no one thought he could do--become an actor. Perhaps he made it so quickly because he was never told how impossible it would be for a young man with almost no professional acting experience to make it in Hollywood. Trusting in fate and his own ability, Winkler literally fell into the role of a lifetime as "The Fonz" on "Happy Days" a week after moving to Hollywood with less than $1,000 to his name. Listening to Winkler talk about his life is a pleasure--this is a tell-all coming from the source. He discusses his shortcomings and successes with sincerity. After "Happy Days" ended, he went on to a respected career in television and films, and is still astounded by his own success. M.S. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2024]
