About this title


My Last Years With Bing by Kathryn Crosby from 1966-1977, is a must read for anyone interested in this part of her marriage to the greatest, probably one of the most powerful, entertainers of the 20th Century. It is well illustrated with over 200 pages of mostly color photographs. It is a fascinating, somewhat anecdotal portrayal and look into a mature, strong-minded, incredibly multi-faceted man of wisdom with almost unlimited talent and ability, married to a much younger, but maturing, energetic, well-educated, intelligent, discerning, talented, charming and beautiful woman. The verbal and written exchanges and bandies alone are worth the price of the book. This well-written account of Kathryn and Bing s last decade together, one wonders about their actual time spent together and their love. Bing was anything but a homebody, seemingly on a quest to make up for lost time, while Kathryn traveled with Bing and the children sometimes, she had her own very active, interesting life as an actress, philanthropist, radio and television personality (she co-hosted the Mike Douglas TV Show for a full week while quite ill). Kathryn authored two other books involving her life with Bing and managed, as a Roman Catholic convert, to become a busy, hands-on Church advocate and, obviously, mother and wife. There are more than 45 books about Bing s life and career and, perhaps an equal number if not more that contain many references and whole chapters devoted to him. This one is different than the others for the obvious aforementioned reasons and a must read for the sheer enjoyment or just for the sheer delight of another picture of Bing Crosby..
