I absolutely loved the book. It was truly an amazing experience, having the opportunity to catch a glimpse inside a world that we can only imagine existed. Eva Beale did such an outstanding job of putting together those wonderful memories, mementos and poems - it gave the reader a real insight as to what Little Edie was really like - not the caricature that is sometimes portrayed. When you read this book, you realize - Little Edie was never "crazy" just way ahead of her time. I will treasure this book and it is just about one of the best things I have ever purchased!
Having seen both the musical on Broadway (with Christine Ebersol) and the film on HBO, I can only say this book brings both to life.
Thanks to both Beale Jr and Eva for allowing the public a view of this wonderful person.
