Description

Peggy Lee has been entrancing audiences for over half a century, starting with her first big break in Benny Goodman's band in 1941. With hits including 'Fever', 'Manana', 'It's a Good Day' and 'Why Don't You Do Right?' her sultry swing-beat style secured her a place Top Ten in the '40s, '50s and '60s. A true perfectionist, she became a successful songwriter, lyricist, arranger and actress, performing with Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole. But backstage, Lee's gritty ambition was born from hardship; she had endured a desperately unhappy childhood, four turbulent marriages, several million-dollar lawsuits, and frequent battles with illness. Now Peggy Lee reveals her triumphant and touching life story, in a voice as direct and intimate as her songs.show more
