from John Meyer's book, actually a diary, about the legendary
performer. The only false note is the frequent sexual aspect
of it. It is improbable that the sexually ambiguous Meyer, (...),"screwed" the star. Everything else seems vivid and true and puts you there with Meyer and
Garland, as a "fly on the wall." It is a well-written diary
that will surely offend the diva-worshippers who wouldn't want
to know about Judy's appalling habits, i.e. kleptomania, selfishness, gulping pills and booze, and "two-hour make-up jobs." On the plus side, it offers us a close-up glimpse at a very, very sharp-witted and funny woman. Looking back at this
brief "affair" of the late-60s, you get a pang of sadness that
the ambitious Meyer never made it as songwriter. If you've
heard his songs, "I'd Like to Hate Myself in the Morning," or
"After the Holidays," you will understand why. His music
is middling to awful, and his only claim to fame will be his
Judy book, one of many, many, many written by husbands,
friends, associates, professional writers and fans. This one
is excellent in that you'll find out things you didn't know,
as opposed to rehashing the usual well-documented trivia.
