“Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland” by Gerald Clarke

I was on a flight from London to New York and this bio of my favorite icon made the nine hours fly by. Clarke relays a legendary career defined by constant falls and stratospheric comebacks and he does it without giving the reader whiplash. This look at Judy is unflinching, often unflattering, and doesn’t attempt to deify her, which ended up endearing her to me even more.
