About this product
- DescriptionFew jazz singers have become icons like Billie Holiday. In With Billie, we hear the voices of those people who knew Billie best: pia players and dancers, pimps and junkies, lovers and narcs, producers and critics, each recalling intimate stories of the Billie they knew. What emerges is a portrait of a complex, contradictory, enthralling woman, a woman who contrary to myth knew what she wanted and what really mattered to her. Julia Blackburn has pieced together an oral history of this jazz great, creating a unique and fascinating view of an astonishing woman.
- Author BiographyJulia Blackburn is the author of three books of nonfiction, Charles Waterton, The Emperor s Last Island, and Daisy Bates in the Desert, and of two novels, The Book of Colorand The Leper s Companions, both of which were shortlisted for the Orange Prize. She lives in England.
