By Sid Luft,Randy L. Schmidt
Previously unpublished, Sid Luft's intimate autobiography tells his and Judy's tale in hard-boiled but based prose. It starts off on a fateful evening in big apple urban while the no longer rather divorced Judy Garland and the now not particularly divorced Sid Luft meet at Billy Reed's Little membership and fall for every other.
The romance lasted Judy's lifetime, regardless of the separations, the reconciliations, and the divorce. less than Luft's administration, Judy got here again greater than ever, development a making a song profession that rivaled Sinatra's. even though, her drug dependencies and suicidal developments positioned a huge pressure at the relationship.
Sid didn't entire his memoir; it led to 1960 after Judy employed David Begelman and Freddie Fields to control her profession. yet Randy L. Schmidt, acclaimed editor of Judy Garland on Judy Garland and writer of Little woman Blue: The lifetime of Karen Carpenter, seamlessly pieced jointly the ultimate component to the ebook from vast interviews with Sid, so much formerly unpublished.
Despite every little thing, Sid by no means stopped loving Judy and not forgave himself for now not having the ability to eventually shop her from the demons that drove her to an early dying at age forty-seven in 1969. Sid served as leader conservator of the Garland legacy till his demise on the age of eighty-nine in 2005. this is often his testomony to the affection of his life.
