More About This Book

Overview

memoraBEALEia : A Private Scrapbook about Edie Beale of Grey Gardens by Walter Newkirk, celebrates and pays tribute to Edith "Little Edie" Bouvier Beale. Miss Beale was the first cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and is best known for her participation in the famous documentary Grey Gardens (1976). This book was specifically created for fans of the film.

On April 22, 1976 college journalist Walter Newkirk traveled to Grey Gardens, the Beale estate on Long Island, to interview Edie Beale about Grey Gardens, for his college newspaper, The Rutgers Daily Targum.

In the 1970s, Edie Beale and her mother Edith Bouvier Beale -- the respective cousin and aunt of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis - former society ladies - were living in a cat-infested, filthy, crumbling estate called Grey Gardens in East Hampton.

The interview for the Rutgers newspaper was conducted shortly after the release of the film. Newkirk and Beale kept in touch for several years, by phone and by mail. After the estate was sold and her mother died, Beale moved to New York ( from 1980-1983) and the author escorted her to luncheons, parties and special events. She later moved to Florida, and died in January 2002.

memoraBEALEia contains never-before-seen photographs of Edie Beale and Grey Gardens, the Rutgers Targum interview along with a few other obscure newspaper clippings, reproductions of letters written by Little Edie (along with cards she created), and art inspired by Grey Gardens. There are also essays about Miss Beale by photojournalist/paparazzo Ron Galella, former literary agent Pat Loud (An American Family, PBS TV series, 1973) and the artist Maria Manhattan.

A new movie about Edie Beale and her mother, also called Grey Gardens, starring Drew Barrymore as Little Edie and Jessica Lange as her mother Big Edie will be released during 2008.

    A MUST OWN For Any Grey Gardens Fan

    After viewing the HBO special with Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lang I purchased this scrapbook right away.
    It gives a peek into Little Edie's loving personality and creativity.
    I am also a huge fan of scrapbooks as it shares pieces of ones real life and what they had to offer the ones they loved during their life.
    It shows the time taken to offer keepsakes to the loved ones in their life.
    This is a great book to read and study over and over again.
    The relationship between mother and daughter was pure understanding and even more the purest of love.
    In a way that they understood.
