Even better than I hoped 4 Jun. 2009
By B. W. Maness - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Over the last few years I have collected all the Grey Gardens related items I could find (excluding the house itself!) I just received this book today and, other than the DVDs, this is my favorite.

As soon as I opened the box, I had to sit and go through the entire book page by page. With every turn, my interest grew. It is a beautiful collection of photos and other memorabilia that give insight to a most fascinating life. Somehow, I thought that Edie's active life in New York and other social scenes was short. But that was corrected by photos of that life that lead all the way to 1952 and her return to Grey Gardens.

There are many highlights throughout, but the one that made me gasp was a transcript and facsimile of a longish letter written by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in 1972 on Olympic Airlines stationary as she was flying. This letter details her love and attachment to both Edies. It gives very personal insight into those relationships but also to her own life that I have never seen written anywhere.

I could not recommend this book more highly.

Wonderful Tribute to Little Edie 14 Dec. 2008
By Robert W. Montague Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Eva Beale has assembled a wonderful tribute to Little Edie. As she stated in her Amazon.com description of the book, the photos provide touching insight into Little Edie's life as a whole. It is clear that Little Edie lived life on her own terms, and she inspired many more people than she probably ever was aware of. What a treat this book is, and it was well worth the wait. Thank you, Eva, for your hard work toward providing this tribute to Little Edie's memory.

Extraordinary! 27 July 2009
By Walter R. Newkirk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Bouvier Beale wrote in his essay for this book:

We hope this book will help see Edie differently and with a deeper appreciation of how she grew into the familiar character from the Grey Gardens documentary. We hope not to only restore her dignity, but also make known her sensitivity, passion, and genius that we, as her family, remember vividly. It was clear that Little Edie wanted her story to be shared.

Edith Bouvier Beale of Grey Gardens: A Life In Pictures is beyond beyond as I like to say... and the quote above is perfect. Bravo!

The layout and choice of photographs in the book are sumptuous and stunning. I loved the use of Edie's poetry, Bouvier Beale's essay, and the letters from Jackie also. The book truly does restore Edie's dignity, sensitivity, passion and genius - our goals for our books were the same.

Looking through this book was an emotional experience for me - the same thing happened as I read through Edie's 100 or so cards and letters to me between 1976 - 2001 for my next book Letters of Little Edie Beale: Grey Gardens and Beyond her dignity, wit and intelligence shined through.

Edie was so much more than the one dimensional "character" on screen in Grey Gardens and I do think that the public is realizing they saw only a fraction of many layers in the film.

Congratulations to Eva Beale and everyone else involved with the book!
Anyone who loves Grey Gardens and or Edie Beale must have it!

I believe there are also autographed copies of this magnificent publication available on [...]

..because it's Winter in a Summer town 17 Jan. 2009
By John Faber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Had to order this book through Strand in New York--Amazon didn't have it available by Christmas. Wonderful personal photos, letters, and writings from Edie's life. Helps shed some light on the elusive duo of Big and Little. Like all good things, leaves you hungry for more.

Absolutely Terrific Kid! 17 July 2009
By Bettyboy72 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is a must own for Grey Gardens enthusiasts and us Little Edie-philes. The photos are stunning, the poems by Little Edie are telling and heartbreaking and it is just an incredible book that was produced with great care and love. A superb edition, it is limited, so get it while you can. The Edies would be proud!
