George Mair tells how Bette, at twenty, went from a pineapple factory worker in Hawaii to a role in the Broadway hit Fiddler on the Roof in less than a year.
Bette blossomed into the Divine Miss M, the diva once described as one of the "raunchiest and funniest live acts going." Her movies range from the portrayal of the doomed Janis Joplinesque character in The Rose to comedies like Down and Out in Beverly Hills and Ruthless People. Her many hit singles include The Rose, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Wind Beneath My Wings, and From a Distance.
But there is another Bette Midler out of the spotlight: insecure, uncertain, vulnerable, often overweight, never at ease with herself, and frightened of relationships with men and money.
Bette examines the continuing appeal and loyalty between the star and a vast audience of gay men. And, finally, it describes the great joy she's found in her unlikely marriage to Martin von Haselberg, a semi-mysterious German performance artist.
