As with all memoirs, I kept the reminder that the stories contained within were one perspective of incidents involving many people. I'm a longtime fan of Patti LuPone's and I enjoyed reading her memoir. I was more interested in her time spent in the musical arena and less interested in her time at Julliard and working in tv/film. Reading about the notorious Sunset Boulevard debacle was my favorite part. I don't think can argue that ALW is a megalomaniac whose only interest is in promoting himself. Entertaining and engaging read. Pictures were nice but nothing I hadn't seen before.
