    No singer has been more mythologized and more misunderstood than jazz legend Billie Holiday, who helped to create much of the mystique herself with her autobiography, Lady Sings the Blues - and this authentic biography sets the record straight. Donald Clarke was given unrivaled access to a treasure trove of interviews from the 1970s with those who knew Lady Day in all stages of her short, tragic life - from her childhood in the streets and good-time houses of Baltimore, through the early days of success in New York and the years of fame, to her tragic decline.

    Michael says: "Good Biography, Tedious Discography"
    "It has been a struggle."
    Overall

    I have found this book to jump all over the place. I have lost track of who is saying what about whom. I am only 4 hours into it, am lost and at the moment cannot listen further.
