Annotation Peter Richmond seeks to burnish the faded glory of singer Miss Peggy Lee, and place her among such luminaries as Bing Crosby and Quincy Jones. Lee was a perfectionist, a possible alcoholic, a passionate and demanding lover, and occasionally a bit mad, but Richmond focuses mostly on her musical artistry and the decisions she made in her brilliant interpretations of the Great American Songbook.
Editors Note "I learned courage from Buddha, Jesus, Lincoln, and Mr. Cary Grant." So said Miss Peggy Lee. Albert Einstein adored her; Duke Ellington dubbed her "the Queen." With her platinum cool and inimitable whisper, Peggy Lee sold twenty million records, made more money than Mickey Mantle, and presided over music's greatest generation alongside pals Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby. Drawing on exclusive interviews and never-before-seen information, Peter Richmond delivers a complex, compelling portrait of an artist that begins with a girl plagued by loss, her father's alcoholism, and her stepmother's abuse. One day she boards a train, following her muse and hoping her music will lead her someplace better. And it does: to the pantheon of great American singers.
