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 fathers risk-taking lifestyle gave Barbara her first taste of glamour, but Lou Walters didnt just make fortunes--he also lost them. Barbaras 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. *Author: Walters, Barbara *Series Title: Vintage *Subtitle: A Memoir *Publication Date: 2009/05/05 *Number of Pages: 628 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 1.25 *Width: 5.50 *Height: 8.25
From the Publisher:
In a riveting and candid memoir, the acclaimed television journalist chronicles the people, events, and forces that have shaped her life and career, from childhood to the present day, discussing her relationships with men, family, friends, coworkers, and rivals; her struggle to make it in a man's world; and the interviews she has conducted during her forty-year-career. Reprint.
One could hardly imagine a more celebrated and notorious cast of characters--presidents and queens, killers and psychopaths--than the ones populating Barbara Walters's remarkable biography, AUDITION, yet it is Walters herself who emerges as one of the most fascinating of the bunch. A fiercely ambitious woman who broke all the rules in the gender-biased world of journalism, Walter has the ability to remain poised and charming while exposing her interview subjects' deepest secrets: it's this that has made her a revered icon in television. Her worldly, fearless, and at times scandalous biography (Walters admits freely to her affairs, including one with a married senator) simultaneously reveals Walter's personal victories and paints a compelling portrait of the people whose lives helped shape the 20th century.


"[A] legitimately star-studded autobiography...[Nearly achieves] the stature of Katharine Graham's PERSONAL HISTORY the book that set the high-water mark for memoirs of the politically and socially well-connected." - Janet Maslin 05/05/2008
