Misadventures of a Would-Be Muse


"Misadventures of a Would-Be Muse"
Book Review by Ward Morehouse III


I love everything about Beatrice Williams-Rude's memoir except its title, "Misadventures of a Would-Be Muse." (Xlibris)
There's nothing "would-be" about Ms. Williams-Rude's career as an actress, copy editor, columnist and assistant to the late great playwright Dale Wasserman ("Man of La Mancha" and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest") - or, for that matter, her highly-entertaining book.  Ms. Williams-Rude writes movingly and at times lyrically about some of the "Who's Who" of theater and TV as well as her own heart-warming personal journey.
And parts of the it are also downright funny. In working with Dale Wasserman, she writes "Dale's habit had been to ask me to do something, give me carte blanche then micro-manage me while telling me not to bother him with details!"
Ms. Williams-Rude also writes candidly about her late husband, brilliant New York Post TV critic Bob Williams who was a giant on the paper when I worked there myself the first time in the 1970's. Bob Williams really set the gold standard for electronic media criticism. "Bob drank daily and constantly," she writes. "I didn't understand until recently that it was his coping mechanism, what allowed this basically shy, desperately insecure would-be recluse to function in his profession..."
Like her columns and reviews the writing in this book often sings as much as the shows she was in as an actress.  My only criticism is the book doesn't have an index, something Ms. Williams-Rude may add in subsequent editions.
