• "Edie Sedgwick was the spirit of the Sixties, and these pages capture her power to dazzle us. I have read no social history to compare with it. While it is not a novel (although it reads like one) I still will say: This is the book of the Sixties that we have been waiting for"

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

    Los Angeles Times Book Review
  • "Extraordinary... a fascinating narrative that is both meticulously reported and expertly orchestrated"

    The New York Times
  • "Jean Stein and George Plimpton have made such a good job of it that the effect is of a novel illuminating a wide spectrum of Americana"

    George Melly, New Society
  • "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"
