Kurzbeschreibung

15. Oktober 2008
Edith “Little Edie” Bouvier Beale (1917-2002) is best known for her appearance in the critically acclaimed 1975 film Grey Gardens, a documentary by Albert and David Maysles that explored the reclusive lives of Beale and her mother “Big Edie,” the first cousin and aunt of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, respectfully. Over the past three decades, the film and its eccentric stars have become cult icons, inspiring fashion tributes by the likes of Phillip Lim and John Galliano, a hit Broadway musical adaptation that swept up three Tony Awards in 2007, and an upcoming HBO movie starring Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange as the famed odd couple.

Edith Bouvier Beale of Grey Gardens: A Life in Pictures, the latest installment in a series that includes photo-biographies of John F. Kennedy, Pope John Paul II, Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, and others, presents the most in-depth look at the life of Little Edie since the Maysles’ film vaulted her into the public consciousness. Conceived by members of the Beale family, the book traces a line from Edie’s childhood through her heady days as a young socialite and her later years at Grey Gardens, the decrepit East Hampton estate where she and her mother lived in near-total isolation for decades. Featuring over 150 newly uncovered photographs and letters, Edith Bouvier Beale of Grey Gardens offers unprecedented access to the personal history of this twentieth-century woman of mystery.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Eva Marie Beale, born and raised in New York, met Bouvier Beale at the age of 24. The founder of Grey Gardens Collections, an online store inspired by the life of Edith Bouvier Beale, Eva’s passions include photography and collecting antiques.

Peter Beard took his first pictures at age twelve, and photography quickly evolved into an extension of his diaries as a way to preserve and remember vacations and favorite things. Trips to Africa in 1955 and 1960 piqued his interests, and after graduating from Yale he returned to Kenya via Karen Blixen. In the early 60s, Beard worked at Kenya’s Tsavo National Park, acquired a ranch in East Africa, and made his home base. Peter Beard’s first exhibit was in New York in 1975. In addition to creating original artwork, Beard has befriended and collaborated on projects with many artists including Andy Warhol, Truman Capote, and Francis Bacon. In 1996, after he was skewered and trampled by an elephant, his first major retrospective opened at the Centre National de la Photographie in Paris, followed by others around the world. He now lives in New York City, Montauk Point, and Kenya with his wife Nejma and daughter Zara.

Anne Verlhac grew up in western Africa and studied literature and acting before becoming a design instructor and branding consultant. A founding member of Verlhac Editions, she lives in Paris with her husband and young daughter.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Even better than I hoped 4. Juni 2009
Von B. W. Maness - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Over the last few years I have collected all the Grey Gardens related items I could find (excluding the house itself!) I just received this book today and, other than the DVDs, this is my favorite.

As soon as I opened the box, I had to sit and go through the entire book page by page. With every turn, my interest grew. It is a beautiful collection of photos and other memorabilia that give insight to a most fascinating life. Somehow, I thought that Edie's active life in New York and other social scenes was short. But that was corrected by photos of that life that lead all the way to 1952 and her return to Grey Gardens.

There are many highlights throughout, but the one that made me gasp was a transcript and facsimile of a longish letter written by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in 1972 on Olympic Airlines stationary as she was flying. This letter details her love and attachment to both Edies. It gives very personal insight into those relationships but also to her own life that I have never seen written anywhere.

I could not recommend this book more highly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful Tribute to Little Edie 14. Dezember 2008
Von Robert W. Montague Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Eva Beale has assembled a wonderful tribute to Little Edie. As she stated in her Amazon.com description of the book, the photos provide touching insight into Little Edie's life as a whole. It is clear that Little Edie lived life on her own terms, and she inspired many more people than she probably ever was aware of. What a treat this book is, and it was well worth the wait. Thank you, Eva, for your hard work toward providing this tribute to Little Edie's memory.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Extraordinary! 27. Juli 2009
Von Walter R. Newkirk - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Bouvier Beale wrote in his essay for this book:

We hope this book will help see Edie differently and with a deeper appreciation of how she grew into the familiar character from the Grey Gardens documentary. We hope not to only restore her dignity, but also make known her sensitivity, passion, and genius that we, as her family, remember vividly. It was clear that Little Edie wanted her story to be shared.

Edith Bouvier Beale of Grey Gardens: A Life In Pictures is beyond beyond as I like to say... and the quote above is perfect. Bravo!

The layout and choice of photographs in the book are sumptuous and stunning. I loved the use of Edie's poetry, Bouvier Beale's essay, and the letters from Jackie also. The book truly does restore Edie's dignity, sensitivity, passion and genius - our goals for our books were the same.

Looking through this book was an emotional experience for me - the same thing happened as I read through Edie's 100 or so cards and letters to me between 1976 - 2001 for my next book Letters of Little Edie Beale: Grey Gardens and Beyond her dignity, wit and intelligence shined through.

Edie was so much more than the one dimensional "character" on screen in Grey Gardens and I do think that the public is realizing they saw only a fraction of many layers in the film.

Congratulations to Eva Beale and everyone else involved with the book!
Anyone who loves Grey Gardens and or Edie Beale must have it!

I believe there are also autographed copies of this magnificent publication available on [...]

Von John Faber - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Had to order this book through Strand in New York--Amazon didn't have it available by Christmas. Wonderful personal photos, letters, and writings from Edie's life. Helps shed some light on the elusive duo of Big and Little. Like all good things, leaves you hungry for more.

Von Bettyboy72 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is a must own for Grey Gardens enthusiasts and us Little Edie-philes. The photos are stunning, the poems by Little Edie are telling and heartbreaking and it is just an incredible book that was produced with great care and love. A superb edition, it is limited, so get it while you can. The Edies would be proud!
