The book With Billie by Julia Blackburn is a look at the international icon of music from those who knew her best: from piano players and dancers to lovers and narcs, from pimps and junkies, to producers and critics.
The result is an enthralling portrait of a woman who never lost sight of her goals and ambitions.
Nobel Prize-winning novelist Toni Morrison says, “Nowhere else is the context of her life so vividly captured.”
