- From tomorrow until Thursday I have a sailing course (eek!). I am very exited because I really do adore sailing, but the last time I did one I got trapped under my boat. I was petrified, but I got over it very fast and was back on my boat racing! But long story short, I will be quite cold.
- I have truck loads of homework to do over this week (half term for me) and won't be able to blog as much *sigh*. Oh well, I'll probably squeeze in a bit of rambling here and there.
My Judy Garland Life:
This book is basically Susie Boyt's tribute to her favourite movie star. She is, I think, the biggest hero worshiper I have come across, EVAH! Picture me writing My Bette Davis Life times 1000. Yes, that bad. The whole book is a mesh of her memoirs and Judy Garland's, and it works really well. I should probably tell you about Susie before I continue
Occupation: (At the time of the book's publication) Judy Garland WORSHIPER!
Hobbies: Cooking, Singing, Finding "Judy friends" (people who obsess over Judy Garland)
Interesting facts: She is the daughter of Lucian Freud the painter.
My Thoughts On Her: She is a very sweet and thoughtful woman who has what I would call a hero-worshiper complex. In a good way.
BACK TO THE ANALYSIS (IT SOUNDS SO MUCH MORE POSH THAN REVIEW!)
I find it pretty awesome that she managed to meet Liza Minnelli and Mickey Rooney for the book, and it is definitely a worthwhile read. The only criticism that I had was that some of the chapters were so emotionally rambling that I wanted to skip parts, but maybe my understanding of that will come for me with age.
I like Susie and Judy, and Bette Davis is in Judy Garland's address book
I thought it was quite disturbing that she only had pictures of Judy and her family in her room and none of her family.
Hope ya'll liked the review!
