Editorial Reviews

Review

"Referring to Billie Holiday (1915-1959) as the iconic female jazz singer, an independent scholar/biographer examines her contributions to the genre as well as the legendary aspects of her short, troubled life. In a series for high school and public library readers, the book includes photos of Lady Day, an index, and references including a selected discography and the official and unofficial Billie Holiday Web sites."

Format: Hardcover
As the title of my review states, the book is well written. I would suggest it for high school students or those unfamiliar with Billie Holiday and her life and times.
For me it was too short and most of the material I was familiar with from reading the many other books available that I've read about Miss Holiday.
It was way overpriced for the length but it was refreshing to receive a book with a very sturdy hard cover!
Definitely a good book for a fast read!

It was impossible to find any information on Billie Holiday. Since it is a bibliography, I figured there would be some good facts in it, but there was not.
