Whoopi Goldberg: Comedian and Movie Star

Whoopi Goldberg: Comedian and Movie Star

by William Caper

Hardcover(Library Binding)



How did a poor, shy little girl from the housing projects of New York City rise to Hollywood stardom and international fame? By the time she was twenty years old, Whoopi Goldberg was a high school dropout, a recovered drug addict, and a divorced mother. Moving to California, she found whatever work she could: as a bricklayer, a bank teller, even a hairstylist for the dead at a funeral parlor. Throughout her life, Goldberg's dream was to be a performer, and that dream led her at last to Broadway and then to Hollywood and an Academy Award for her role in the movie Ghost. Outrageous Whoopi Goldberg is not a typical Hollywood personality, and her rocky pathway to success and fame is a compelling story.
