Billie Holiday, one of the greatest jazz singers of all time, had a troubled life: a childhood in poverty, brothels, jail, broken love, and a dependence on alcohol and heroin.
Her first performances in the night clubs of prohibitionist America was where her pioneering vocal style was born? later to become a lasting influence on jazz, pop, and modern music to this day.
Performing with jazz legends such as Lester Young, Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, and Artie Shaw, she became a true American icon.
This graphic novel, told through short biographical fragments, is the story of Lady Day.
