The way I was by Marvin Hamlisch( Book )

7 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most gifted popular composers of our time, Marvin Hamlisch's book is funny, witty, brutally frank, and moving. He writes about the career that brought him three Academy Awards, a Pulitzer Prize, and international fame by the age of thirty-one. It also left him alone, with nowhere to go but down. The son of Viennese immigrants, he was sent to New York City's Juilliard School of Music when he was only six, but the place made him a nervous wreck, and he unfailingly threw up before every final exam. He helped a young Liza Minnelli make her first record as a Christmas present for her mother, Judy Garland. He next went to Broadway where he was a rehearsal pianist for Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl. Moving to Hollywood, he composed the score and title song for The Way We Were, adapted the music for The Sting, and accepted three Oscars in one evening. He came back east after that to work with Michael Bennett on A Chorus Line. He also had failures such as Jean and Smile. Tough years followed with no writing offers of much consequence. Being idle and alone was agony. Hamlisch started experiencing excruciating headaches and developed depression. He realized that his life " ... would have to stop being about showing them. It would have to start to be about showing me."

Born in New York City in 1922, Elmer Bernstein was one of America's most celebrated composers best known for the award-winning musical scores he developed for film, theatre, and television over a fifty-year career. His best-known work includes the scores he wrote for The Great Escape , The Magnificent Seven , To Kill a Mockingbird , Ghostbusters , and The Ten Commandments , among many others. He was nominated for fourteen Oscars, winning one for the score to Thoroughly Modern Millie in 1967. He was also nominated for two Grammy Awards and won two Golden Globe awards. This debut memoir by Pearl Bernstein Gardner, his wife of twenty years, Galatea to his Pygmalion, provides a sweeping account of the great composer's life from their time together as newlyweds living in a fifth-floor New York City walk-up to the glamour of the red carpet and the intrigues of Hollywood during the turbulent McCarthy period. The Bernsteins were also close friends with many prominent musicians, actors, directors, and writers of the day, including Frank Sinatra, Clifford Odets, Danny Kaye, Otto Preminger, and Cecil B. DeMille and the portraits of their intimate conversations are both poignant and memorable
