    Description
    She sang of love and loneliness with a power and presence that few other performers have ever possessed.In a memoir that is as poignant, lyrical, and dramatic as her legendary performances, Billie Holliday tells her own story. She recalls a turbulent adolescence in Harlem during the 1920s, the excitement of working in New York City's famous jazz clubs with the musicians who brought jazz to the forefront of American culture, and her own dazzling rise to the top. The darker side of the Holliday legend is here too: the men who exploited her, the racial prejudice she encountered, and her harrowing struggle with heroin addiction.'Skilful, shocking, and brutal' - The New York Times
