The short life and long musical legacy of this blues singer hold endless fascination for a public touched by her genius and the image of her suffering. In this first authentic biography of Lady Day, Clarke reveals a far more complex figure, based on rare, previously unavailable interviews. Includes 24 pages of black-and-white photos--many, never seen before. 15,000.
