Edie : An American Biography, Paperback

Edie : An American Biography Paperback



Born into a wealthy New England family, Edie Sedgwick became, in the 1960s, both an emblem of, and a memorial to, the doomed world spawned by Andy Warhol.

Edie was outrageous, vulnerable and strikingly beautiful.

Her childhood was dominated by a brutal but glamouros father.

Fleeing to New York, she became an instant celebrity, kown to everyone in the literary, artistic and fashionable worlds of the day.

She was Warhol's twin soul, his creature, the superstar of his films and, finally, the victim of a life which he created for her.

Edie is an American fable on an epic scale - the story of a short, crowded and vivid life which is also the story of the decade.
