Reviews

"John Szwed's swift, conversational and yet detail-rich new biography, Billie Holiday: The Musician and the Myth, communicates its artist-first priorities in the subtitle, and then makes good on them throughout ... That's about as fine a centenary-year gift as anyone had a right to expect." Guardian "Insightful, investigative... entertaining and illuminating ... a wonderfully engaging and revealing look at the great Lady Day." The Scotsman "Illuminating account restores to the singer the dignity of a true artist." Observer "A musicologist's appreciation of the jazz singer... a marvel." Independent "Szwed's book offers a fresh attempt to understand and explain the nature and scope of Holiday's achievement." Times Literary Supplement
