I enjoyed this book. It was an interesting look at a pretty unique life. Billie Holiday was a pretty big personality and it comes through in her book.

Anyone read this? I'm feeling like for $1.99 I may have to give it a try!

Lola I haven't read it but I remember that there was a movie based on it with Diana Ross and Billy Dee Williams. The book looks good! 3y

Highlight of my week: Tuesday night classes @ Jazz at Lincoln Center. This term I'm taking Billie Holiday and the Swing song tradition. Excited to finally read this memoir'ish, fiction'ish account.
