A far cry from the fantasy of the musical “Gypsy,” this book explores Gypsy's life in her desperate climb for survival and stardom, her rivalry with her sister, and her relationship with her mother – a far more terrifying figure in real-life than she ever achieved in the musical! SS/St. John Branch
