Product description

When Edie was first published a decade ago, it quickly became an international bestseller. In the sixties Edie Sedgwick exploded into the public eye like a comet--aristocratic, glamorous, and Andy Warhol's superstar. Then at 28 her light fizzled and died from a drug overdose. Alternately thrilling, tragic and horrifying, this book shatters many myths about the American sixties. Photographs.

Review quote

"This is the book of the Sixties that we have been waiting for."--Norman Mailer "Through a kaleidoscope of seemingly fragmented voices, patterns form, giving brilliant definition to the very American tragedy of Edie Sedgwick, a woman...not likely to be forgotten after this haunting portrait."--"Publishers Weekly" "Extraordinary . . . a fascinating narrative that is both meticulously reported and expertly orchestrated."--"The New York Times" "An exceptionally seductive biography. . . . You can't put it down. . . . It has novelistic excitement."--"Los Angeles Times Book Review" "What makes this book so unusual, unique almost, is the picture it paints of the New York counterculture. No one has ever done it better."--"The Atlanta Journal & Constitution" "There is no more classic summertime read." --New York Magazine
