Edie was outrageous, vulnerable and strikingly beautiful. Her childhood was dominated by a brutal but glamouros father. Fleeing to New York, she became an instant celebrity, kown to everyone in the literary, artistic and fashionable worlds of the day. She was Warhol's twin soul, his creature, the superstar of his films and, finally, the victim of a life which he created for her. Edie is an American fable on an epic scale - the story of a short, crowded and vivid life which is also the story of the decade.Hide synopsis

This is an excellent biography of the Warhol star, socialite, and party girl, Edie Sedgewick. It is told in the form of interviews with many of her relatives, friends, and acquaintances. It is very engrossing, but ultimately a very sad story of the descent into drugs and death of a beautiful girl who had everything going for her but couldn't escape her childhood demons. Your heart will break and you will want to reach out to her and help her.
