Bits and Pieces: My Mother, My Brother, and Me

We rated this book:


The author, Whoopi Goldberg is well known starting with her one woman Broadway show. From that time forward, she has starred in movies, television and Comic Relief. This book provides a way to get to know her better since it focuses on her family life. She was born Caryn Johnson and nicknamed Whoopi in the comedy clubs. Her mother chose a family surname to dub her Goldberg. It is clear that she adored her mother and brother who are now deceased. The author details the many outings her mother arranged for her children, in spite of working as a single parent. It is a sweet book but doesn’t sugar coat her rebellious nature and hard times. It is a tribute to her character that she paid back all of the welfare money which supported her and her young child.

It surprised me that this is Ms. Goldberg’s eighth book along with her seven children’s books. It is heart warming that a celebrity would look back and thank her devoted family for believing in her.
