WHAT HAVE WE HERE? Portraits of a Life

by | Read by Billy Dee Williams

Biography & Memoir • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Every one of performer Billy Dee Williams's well-lived 86 years can be heard in this candid memoir. Williams's somewhat tired vocal demeanor sharply contrasts with his cool and crisp delivery of the fascinating events of his life, beginning with his childhood appearance in a Broadway show. He has a tinge of a New York City accent. And--make no mistake--his frequent odd pauses make this a somewhat difficult listening experience. The moving events of his life are all here: a career-defining role in the movie BRIAN'S SONG; stories of working with Diana Ross and the Motown empire; and anecdotes about plays, occasional musicals, nightclub shows, and his role as an accomplished painter. His suave, ultra-cool style is apparent both in the text and in his performances at any age--including in this audiobook. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2024]
