Talks & ideas

Ten years ago Susie Boyt took time out from novel writing to indulge her life-long obsession with Judy Garland, producing a book that layers biography, autobiography, hero worship and sequin-studded self-help.  Ali Smith described it in The Times as “a truly altruistic piece of modern thought, this wonderfully clever books flings its arms out in a rainy street like a wonderful diva. Brava.”  Boyt shares the many permutations of her love of the diva and what it’s taught her, complete with entertainments and interactions. For everyone who has ever held a candle to a star.
