Description by OLDIES.com:

A star of two well-remembered television series, The FBI and 77 Sunset Strip, Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. looks back on the many different roads he has traveled in his lifetime and recreates his most memorable experiences in the prose of a true stylist. The son of two legendary musical talents, (violinist Efrem Zimbalist and operatic soprano Alma Gluck) Efrem Jr. grew up on an estate in the Connecticut countryside. Long before he was a recognized actor, Zimbalist broke a show business barrier as coproducer of Gian Carlo Menotti's operatic double bill, The Medium and The Telephone, on Broadway. Its critical and (surprising) commercial success led to Zimbalist's coproduction of Menotti's next opera, The Consul, also on Broadway and also with gratifying results, including the Pulitzer Prize.

Zimbalist's memoir abounds in anecdotes about show business, family, and travels in the United States and abroad. But what most distinguishes this book is that, whatever the topic, Zimbalist writes with exceptional claritry, grace, precision and sincerity. There are no ghosts hovering over his narrative. Every word comes with skill from the same generous source.
