Groovy Giveaway: Judy Garland on Judy Garland: Interviews and Encounters



Courtesy of Chicago Review Press, this week I'm giving away two copies of Randy L. Schmidt's book, Judy Garland on Judy Garland: Interviews and Encounters, which explores the legend's life in her own words.

"It's going to be one hell of a great — everlastingly great — book with humor, tears, fun, emotion and love," Judy Garland said of her plans to tell her life story. But she died at the age of 47 before seeing it through. Judy Garland on Judy Garland is the closest we will likely come to experiencing and exploring the legend's planned autobiography. Collecting and presenting the most important Garland interviews and encounters that took place between 1935 and 1969, this work opens with her first radio appearance under contract with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and concludes with her last known interview, one taped for Radio Denmark just months before her death. What makes this collection unique is that it places Judy in the role of storyteller. She wrote a number of essays for various publications and sat for countless print, radio and television interviews. These and the other autobiographical efforts she made are proof that Judy Garland wanted her story told in her own words. Finally, 45 years after her death, here it is.
