About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for LADY SINGS THE BLUES by Holiday, Billie with William Dufty.

Description:

Very minor rubbing to corners, edges and end caps. A couple faint little smudges to fore edge and a faint 3" smudge to bottom edge. Moderate wear to DJ edges, with some tiny chips and .5" chip to upper DJ spine. Mild shelfwear to DJ. Black and silver lettering to spine, cherry red cloth-covered boards. Photographs decorate endpapers. Unmarked text. Solid binding. Obituary from newspaper laid-in to rear. 250 pp with chronological discography. The autobiography of a legend begins: "Mom and Pop were just a couple of kids when they got married. He was eighteen, she was sixteen, and I was three." Then later on: "I've been told that nobody sings the word 'hunger' like I do. Or the word 'love.' Maybe I remember what those words are all about. Maybe I'm proud enough to want to remember Baltimore and Welfare Island, the Catholic institution and the Jefferson Market Court, the sheriff in front of our place in Harlem and the towns from coast to coast where I got my lumps and scars, Philly and Alderson, Hollywood and San Francisco -- every damn bit of it. All the cadillacs and minks in the world -- and I've had a few -- can't make it up or make me forget it," (front flap excerpt). VERY GOOD PLUS in Good Dustjacket. Bookseller Inventory #
