Format: Paperback
No, it's not possible for Little Edie to be uninteresting, but it is possible for someone to publish a bunch of pretty boring letters from her to make a buck. The book is short (thankfully?), and you will read letters from Edie talking about the weather, Florida, and her problems w/ the phone. For good measure every fourth or fifth letter has some statement about politics or celebrities, but they really aren't groundbreaking or fun, just observations. Bottom line: had I been able to peruse through this at a book store, I would not have purchased it.

Format: Paperback
This wonderful book shows the real Little Edie- not the Little Edie who was ON for the cameras or under the watchful and critical of Mother Darling. These letters are priceless and thankfully Mr. Newkirk saved them and now has shared them with everyone. Also it's wonderful to see all of the art that Little Edie has inspired. I loved memoraBEALEia, the story of how Mr. Newkirk met and became friends with Little Edie. Letters of Little Edie gives you the verbatim chronicles of what Edie wrote, and it is absolutely terrific. Thanks once again Mr. Newkirk for sharing the REAL Edie with us.

Walter's consumate attention to his subject is unique and sensitive. He reveals her in a way where other's see themselves and adeptly allows one the intimacy artistically shared.
