At 21, Eddie Fisher was America's honey-voiced legend. Now he lends his voice to this audiobiography, which retraces the path of his life from working-class origins to entertainment's ruling class. Fisher tells of his mother scraping together 40 dollars to buy a piano for the family; he expresses such tenderness that it's difficult not to be moved. As his life tales become more glamorous (flirting with Taylor, schmoozing with Sinatra), listeners will still be intrigued. Listening to Fisher's personal story is perhaps even more fascinating because it's not yet over. R.A.P. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 00]
