If You Can’t Be Free, Be A Mystery: In Search of Billie Holiday.

Book cover design for the Billie Holiday biography. Singer, composer, actress, lover, wife, writer, pleasure seeker, drug addict, icon, commodity, myth and mystery: Billie Holiday is still one of the most famous jazz vocalists of all time. But Holiday’s image — the gifted torch singer with insatiable appetites for food, sex, alcohol and drugs — is not the full story. Farah Jasmine Griffin’s enchanting investigation of Holiday, her world and how she is remembered, at last fully liberates Lady Day from the tragic songstress myth.
