Summary
After more than forty years of interviewing celebrities of all kinds, the most important woman in the history of television journalism has turned her gift for examination onto herself to reveal the forces that shaped her extraordinary life. Her father's risk-taking lifestyle gave Barbara her first taste of glamour, but Lou Walters didn't just make fortunes--he also lost them. Barbara's roller-coaster childhood played a large part in the choices she made as she grew up: the friendships, the marriages she tried to make work. Ultimately, her drive, with a decent amount of luck, got her a career in television. Barbara has spent a lifetime auditioning: for the networks, for the viewers, for the most famous people in the world, and even for her own daughter, with whom she has had a difficult relationship. This book is her final audition, as she opens up both her private and public lives.--From publisher description
