What could have made this book even better? I would say more pictures of Bessie, a picture of any of the family members, Jack Gee, Richard Morgan (the true love of her life), her train or maybe the lyrics to a couple of her songs. A great read!
I looked for, but failed to find, any sign of original research, so I have to wonder what possible justification there might be to "write" and publish a book such as "Queen of the Blues". The retail price is cheaper, which is a selling point, I suppose, but the content is also considerably thinner. Granted, you will have far deeper knowledge of Bessie after reading this book—unlike the recent HBO film, "Bessie," it is not a dabbler's [Dee Reese] shameless distortion of fact, but it is, nevertheless, teetering on the thin line that sometimes separates integrity from plagiarism.
