Grey Gardens - The Book




After watching the Grey Gardens HBO movie, it is hard to not feel sorry for both Big and Little Edie. The two women spent an enormous amount of time rotting inside their isolation. HBO is sort of a spin off from the real documentary directed by Albert and David Maysles were the two women play out their relationship in front of the camera. Now Albert's daughters put together a book that unveils unseen footage and tons of photograhs. They even found out the reposnse letter from Edie to the review of the film (below). And the book itself seems to be a collection that both Edies would be proud off as an excellent summer gift.
