"Waters' career spanned seven decades, from vaudeville to Harlem nightclubs, from Broadway to Hollywood. Bogle, the author of several biographies of black entertainers...offers a penetrating look at a woman of massive talent and determination." (starred review)
"Not since the heavenly dressing crew worked its miracle in 'Cabin in the Sky' has anyone labored as hard to rehabilitate Waters's image as Donald Bogle has in writing HEAT WAVE....Bogle, a historian of ­African-American entertainment and the author of several good books on the subject...has researched Waters thoroughly and presents, fastidiously, the great many facts of her long life and career."
