"The Girl of the Year", "Youthquaker", "It Girl", "Poor Little Rich Girl", "Warhol Superstar". Edie Sedgwick exploded into the public eye like a comet. She seemed to have it all: she was aristocratic and glamorous, vivacious, and young. Her life was a dazzling and destructive trajectory through an American fable. Doomed, Edie flared out as quickly as she had appeared, and at twenty-eight her life gave out. In a stunning tapestry of voices of those she enchanted and distressed–family, friends, lovers, rivals–the entire meteoric orbit of Edie Sedgwick’s life is brilliantly captured.
