About this product
- DescriptionEdwards's biography presents a complete picture of the late actress-and t just the boozing, drug-addicted caricature of a woman central to lesser biographies. We learn, for example, that Garland saw it as her duty to provide for her family financially, a generosity that her mother Ethel exploited with disastrous results. Above all, Judy Garland sought to please, whether it was an audience or a studio head, and therein lies her powerful and heartbreaking story.
- Author BiographyAnne Edwards is the author of several bestselling biographies of notable figures, including film stars Vivien Leigh and Katharine Hepburn, as well as Queen Mary and Gone with the Wind novelist Margaret Mitchell.
