Bette Midler, also known as Divine Miss M—the indomitable and incomparable singer, actor, and musical theater extraordinaire, with a career spanning almost half a century—revisits her classic memoir, now with a new introduction.

This book was a kind of last hurrah. When I read it, I hear a disarmingly younger, sweeter voice…I am not sure that this little confection captures a whole time, but I think it’s an accurate picture of the spirit and tone of what I was doing in those days...I hope it holds up, and that you find your best younger self in it as I do...

With her brassy voice and bold performances making the world finally pay attention, this ambitious Jewish girl from Hawaii, needs no introduction. Grammy award–winning singer, Academy Award–nominee, Broadway star of her critically acclaimed one-woman show, and beloved actress in The Rose, Beaches, and Down and Out in Beverly Hills—Bette Midler is a household name whose career and fans span generations.

In A View from A Broad, Bette relives her career through memories of endless rehearsals, her fear of flying, crazy schedules, and wisdom she learned from Thai Gondoliers with her trademark razor-blade wit that her fans have grown to know, love, and expect.

Filled with photographs, a new introduction, and heartwarming stories that highlight only a portion of a brilliant career, A View from a Broad is the perfect gift for anyone who loves music, theater, or just plain fun—and will be cherished by the fans of Divine Miss M for years to come.

5.0 von 5 Sternen LOVE THE TITLE ... (THE BOOK IS PRETTY GOOD TOO !!! ) 2. April 2014
Von Robert Steven Thomas - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Have you seen Bette Midler recently? She looks great! Part of the glow might be coming from the release of her updated book. It is witty, funny, sarcastic, down-to-earth and informative. What else would you expect from this multi-talented woman. Fiction is fine for passing the time ... but so is non-fiction when it is presented in a great biography like this one. This is a book which will hold the interest of many readers.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Still broad, but more depth 3. April 2014
Von Edward J. Trenn - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The book is funny, brash, unpredictable and literally all over the map with its fun photography. Ms. Midler's act was solidifying the characters and humor that launched her successful concerts for the rest of her career, and this is a fascinating look behind the scenes of her first global tour. She's also a good writer, effective whether she's trying to be funny or reflective. Read this book after seeing her concert films "Divine Madness" and "The Showgirl Must Go On," and it will help you connect the dots between the two. The bonus is having Ms. Midler look back with affection in the new forward she wrote for this re-release.

It takes a lot of guts to put on a hot dog costume and take it across the globe. It takes talent and self-awareness to spin it into a book that still holds up 34 years later. Thanks for sentimental journey, Ms. Midler. It's great to have you sit down in front of the keyboard again.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Crazy, funny, free-wheelin' thoughts on preparing for and living through a world tour 10. September 2014
Von Kathy Davie - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
A brief documentary look into Bette Midler's 1978 world tour and her musings, thoughts, and reactions.

My Take
Melodramatic and free-wheeling, ridiculous chatter that feels as though you're listening to Midler talking at you. It's crazy and revealing, sad and ditzy, happy and nuts, and too funny for words. Do be sure to read Midler's "Band Application". You'll crack up.

An interesting tidbit about growing up in Hawaii surrounded by all that gorgeous color. It certainly makes sense about Bette, and I'm completely with her on this. Color is too important to ignore!
"Being moral isn't what you do … it's what you mean to do."

Color and black-and-white photographs are scattered throughout the book. Pictures that will make you laugh out loud and others that will pull you in. Midler free associates in her humorous style about each country she visits with comments about the food, the money, going through customs, the audiences, styles, and more.

Midler doesn't spare anyone, including herself. I particularly enjoyed her point about always taking characters on the road with her — masks she can hide behind. Reading her process for how she determined the identities of the characters was a fascinating look behind-the-scenes.

For the most part, the chatter holds together, although there are great lengths that you simply read without worrying about what it means. It's rather scattered at times nor am I always sure what's truth and what's said for the fun of it.

The Characters
You all know Bette Midler. Miss Frann Frank was her prim and proper companion and wardrobe mistress. She mentions her mother and her siblings: Daniel and her twin sisters, Judy and Susan.

The Harlettes are Katie, Franny, and Linda. At least to start.

Vilmos Angst is a determined film director.

Yes, there are more characters, but these were the ones who stood out.

The Cover
The cover is a bright pink with Bette Midler in a mermaid costume, hip cocked, head shyly tilted, and arms raised in a Y-frame as though she’s holding up the Hollywood-lights title. It’s perfect.

The title keeps cracking me up for its literal and humorous interpretation, as this is indeed A View From a Broad.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The whirl wind that was the first world tour 25. November 1998
Von S. Baldwin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a combination of scrap book and jotter, containing thoughts both real and in the abstract from the time deciding to do her first world tour, prepare for it and actually under take it. There are chapters on all the major cities she visited. Only likely to be able to get it now from a Bette Middler fan. Good fun.
