2.0 out of 5 stars Edie: Factory Girl - annoying, yes, but maybe a good read for the fans, 17 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Edie Factory Girl (Hardcover)
My expectations for this book were not great, and I was aware of its flaws when I ordered it.

And yes, the page layout of the book is a mess: it's an eyesore and a bloody murder of what might be termed "good and proper professional book design". The text is hard to read because of the obnoxious choice and jumble of colours and type faces and sizes. Terrible.

On top of that, I found David Dalton's narrative a particularly ugly form of high-strung and annoying journalese.

That said, it's a must-have for any Edie Sedgwick fan and does contain a few interesting pieces and photos. It's not expensive, so yes, by all means, go ahead and buy it!

I'd say that if I had to rate the three important Edie books: Edie: American Girl by Jean Stein & George Plimpton and Edie: Girl on Fire by Melissa Painter & David Weisman, this one is not my first choice: that would be Jean Stein's book.

If you already own the other two, this is perhaps a collectors item for the fans of Edie, an extraordinary young woman. She was here for a very short time, but she left such an important legacy.
