Edie: Girl on Fire
Now in paperbackthis is the real story of Edie Sedgwick: model, film star, socialite, friend, lover, and addict; first "it" girl of Andy Warhol's Factory and later muse to Bob Dylan. David Weisman filmed Edie for the last years of her life in his cult film Ciao! Manhattan. After uncovering lost footage, he was inspired to create Edie: Girl on Fire, a book and a documentary film that explore Edie's true story, in the process unearthing hundreds of unpublished photos and interviewing many of Edie's surviving intimates. A rebuttal to Hollywood's highly fictionalized Factory Girl, this is an insightful and startling portrait of a woman that nobody quite knew.

I never get tired of looking at pictures of Edie but I do get tired of reading things about her outside the Jean Stein bio. So, honestly, I didn't read most of what's in the book. I give it 5 stars for the pictures. Read full review
