[This is the MP3CD audiobook format.] *A New York Times Notable Book* A vivid account of the life and times of jazz great Billie Holiday. 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. 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 and death at the age of forty-four. This biography separates fact from fiction to reveal the true Billie Holiday. DONALD CLARKE was the editor and principal author of The Penguin Encyclopedia of Popular Music. His other books are Wishing on the Moon: The Life and Times of Billie Holiday, The Rise and Fall of Popular Music, and All or Nothing at All: A Life of Frank Sinatra. He lives with his wife in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
