it was amazing
Read in January, 2008

Freaky. The author found audio tapes from another would-be author who did the research in 1971 to write a book about Billie Holiday. She transcribed the tapes of all these people, mainly other musicians, who are now dead. Noted is that the stories don't always match up and a lot has been told about Billie Holiday that may or may not be true. She mostly lets the different versions all be told in the hope that overall themes will emerge.

Harold Not only was the book a lot of BS but the movie of the same name even more so.
