Edie: An American Biography by Jean Stein [FIRST EDITION]

  • $20.00


Hardcover with dust jacket.  DJ is in tact with some tanning and wear to edges; small scratch on back.  Book itself is excellent with a hint of tanning to edges of cover.   

In a dazzling tapestry of voices—family, friends, lovers, rivals—the entire meteoric trajectory of Edie Sedgwick’s life is brilliantly captured. And so is the Pop Art world of the ‘60s: the sex, drugs, fashion, music—the mad rush for pleasure and fame. All glitter and flash on the outside, it was hollow and desperate within—like Edie herself, and like her mentor, Andy Warhol. Alternately mesmerizing, tragic, and horrifying, this book shattered many myths about the ‘60s experience in America.
