• "An exceptionally seductive biography... You can't put it down... It has novelistic excitement"

    Los Angeles Times Book Review
  • "Through a kaleidoscope of seemingly fragmented voices, patterns form, giving brilliant definition to the very American tragedy of Edie Sedgwick, a woman...not likely to be forgotten after this haunting portrait"

    Publishers Weekly
  • "There is no more classic summertime read"

    New York Magazine
  • "Jean Stein invented a form that many have tried to replicate since: the oral history biography. The voices in these pages give a sentimental education that is glamorous, dark, sexy, depraved, comical, and profound. Edie maps the follies and glories of an entire era—the Warhol 1960s."
