If You Can't Be Free, Be A Mystery - In Search of Billie Holi


240 pages
Free Press

Illustrated with chronology.

Billie Holiday is still one of the most famous jazz vocalists of all time. Griffin argues that Holiday's image -the gifted torch singer with insatiable appetites for food, sex, alchohol and drugs-is not the full story. This investigation of Holiday, her world and how she is remembered, attempts to liberate Lady Day from the tragic songstress myth.
