From the Publisher
Annotation Although, contrary to the title of one of his biggest hits, he writes only some of the songs, Barry Manilow is still one of the most successful performers of his ilk in pop music history. Patricia Butler's biography is a succinct summary of the singer's life and career, with a plethora of background details from his Brooklyn childhood and extensive interviews with friends, family, and fellow musicians. Starting his professional musical life on the commercial jingle scene, Manilow met the flamboyantly kitsch performer Bette Midler in 1971; their successful partnership performing on New York's gay bathhouse circuit led to Manilow producing her first album and winning his own record deal. A decades-long succession of hits followed, coupled with hugely successful live performances, and, though his music has been consistently scorned by critics, the unswerving adulation of millions of fans worldwide. Butler's interviews and extensive research build a revealing portrait of the private persona behind a very public performing phenomenon.
