We cannot wait to read this!
The childhood diary of Edith "Little Edie" Bouvier Beale is set to be published!
As most know, she and her mother "Big Edie" became infamous for living like recluses in their Hamptons home, as documented by the 1976 film Grey Gardens. Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange portrayed them in the recent HBO program of the same name.
The diary, called I Only Mark The Hours That Shine, was apparently written in 1929 when Little Edie was only 11.
We wonder how much delusional glamour and crazy was bubbling underneath the surface, even back then!
What do U think?? Would be interested in reading Little Edie's diary??
