Born into a wealthy New England family, Edie Sedgwick became, in the 1960s, both an emblem of, and a memorial to, the doomed
world spawned by Andy Warhol. 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.
A brilliant and unique biography of Andy Warhol's tragic muse,
the 60s icon Edie Sedgwick.
