Moon River and Me

by Andy Williams

This book provided a nice walk down memory lane.  As someone who grew up watching Andy Williams on TV and listening to his music I was delighted when Courtney from Plume & Hudson Street Press offered me a review copy.  I learned a lot about Andy Williams that I didn't know and I enjoyed revisiting the past.  

It's been several months since I read Moon River and Me so specifics have left my old, muddled brain but I do remember liking this book.  The writing was easy flowing and nice.  The chronicle of Andy's life from a poor, small town boy to a world famous singer through a time period that I grew up was most interesting.  I had fun looking up some of the old shows on youtube and the memories came flooding back of being a young girl laying on the floor with my head in my hands watching Andy's Christmas special as well as others of his shows.  Good times!

I didn't realize Andy had written a memoir. I've always liked him. I need to check this one out. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

I love Andy Williams. Sometimes I'll see something about him on PBS and watch and remember.
