Event 85


Ten years ago Susie Boyt took time out from novel writing to indulge her life-long obsession with Judy Garland, producing a book that layers biography, autobiography, heroworship and sequin-studded self-help. Ali Smith described it in The Times as “a truly altruistic piece of modern thought, this wonderfully clever books flings its arms out in a rainy street like a wonderful diva. Brava.” Boyt shares the many permutations of her love of the diva and what it’s taught her complete with entertainments and interactions. For everyone who has ever held a candle to a star.
