Edie: Girl on Fire

Overview

Model, film star, socialite, friend, lover, addict, Edie Sedgwick was the first "it" girl of the Andy Warhol Factory scene and later muse to Bob Dylan. The arc of Edie's life traced the rise and fall of the 1960sfrom idyllic experimentation to dissolute recklessness. After being toasted by the whole of New York City, Edie died alone of a drug overdose in California at the age of 28.

Overview

Model, film star, socialite, friend, lover, addict, Edie Sedgwick was the first "it" girl of the Andy Warhol Factory scene and later muse to Bob Dylan. The arc of Edie's life traced the rise and fall of the 1960sfrom idyllic experimentation to dissolute recklessness. After being toasted by the whole of New York City, Edie died alone of a drug overdose in California at the age of 28. David Weisman (with John Palmer) filmed Edie for the last five years of her life in his cult film Ciao! Manhattan. When he recently uncovered lost footage of Edie, David was inspired to create Edie: Girl on Fire, a book and a documentary film that explores Edie's true story. He and coauthor Melissa Painter have tracked down and interviewed many of Edie Sedgwick's surviving intimates, including Danny Fields, Baby Jane Holzer, and Ultra Violet. They also unearthed hundreds of never-before-published photosportraits, professional ad shoots, and heartbreaking snapshots of the girl who won New York's heart and nearly burned down the Chelsea hotel. The book also features a CD with Edie's last interview ever, a riveting account of a rollercoaster life. Sure to be seen as a rebuttal to Hollywood's highly fictionalized film Factory Girl (coming this fall), Edie: Girl on Fire creates an insightful and startling portrait of a woman that nobody quite knew.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Raised to stardom by Andy Warhol, Edie Sedgwick embodied art, drugs and fashion in '60s New York. A new feature film and a documentary coming this winter, and multiple books, attest to her legacy. This candid biography by Weisman, a codirector of her film Ciao! Manhattan, and co-writer Painter surpasses the others, like Edie Factory Girl (VH1 Books, Oct.). Moving from her dysfunctional, blue-blood New England upbringing to death in the grip of addiction, the book showcases 250 images interspersed with anecdotes from stars like Bob Dylan and George Plimpton, and an audio CD of Edie's final interviews.
