There are stories that one may not believe, some that you may not want to believe but what is true when cross referenced across them all & what is examined as coming from the unimpeachable sources, people such as the doctor who brought her into the world, who with his wife stayed part of Garland's life till the very end there is too much here to dismiss compared to most biographies.
Much that the slavish Garland freaks who beatify here may want to read but not much an objective eye can't imagine to be true especially when revisited years later as other books have come out by unrelated sources that verify indirectly similar behaviors and circumstances. If you could only read one bio on her I'd say this is it
