Performed by Robert Klein.
Marvin Hamlisch got his start as a rehearsal pianist for Funny Girl with Barbra Streisand, and went on to co-create A Chorus Line, write the Oscar-winning musical score for The Way We Were, and win many other awards for the music he wrote for the stage and screen. Hamlisch is one of only a handful of people to win a Grammy, a Tony, an Oscar, and an Emmy.
In this revealing autobiography, written in partnership with noted freelance writer Gerald C. Gardner, Hamlisch tells the story of his childhood, his marriage, and his friendships with stars including Liza Minnelli, Barbra Streisand, and Groucho Marx. The autobiography paints a nostalgic and intimate picture of Broadway and Hollywood.
After his death in 2012, Barbra Streisand made a tribute to him in her appearance on the 2013 Oscar broadcast. This book includes moving words from Hamlisch’s many celebrity friends during the memorial service held shortly after his death.

Enjoyable By Damien Slattery (Dublin, Ireland) -
Mr. Hamlisch is candid but gentle in his critique of his career and life. As an A CHORUS LINE fan I particularly loved his diary extracts from 1974 on the creation of this show.
The Delightful Way He Was By Patricia Milburnon
This is a delightful insight into the mind and soul of a musical genius! Maestro Hamlisch directed our Pittsburgh Symphony Pops Concerts each year and they were delightful. You will enjoy this autobiography and its background story about how Marvin Hamlisch became the mensch he was
