Who was Billie Holiday? Was she the jazz starlet that captivated the hearts and imaginations of fans and fellow artists for over half a century; or a drug addled criminal, with a quick wit and even quicker fist?

This is the question that haunts Fred Worthy, a music journalist and Billie admirer, who has taken on the arduous task of writing a biography about the legendary diva, 20 years after her death, only to discover the very public star lived most of her life in the darker regions
outside the glamour and confetti of the spotlights glare. Worthy soon realizes that in order to discover the truth about Billie he will have to confront the dark truths of his own past.

“Blue, Miss Billie” is an intelligent, hilarious, stylish entry on one of the most fascinating and notorious personalities of the 20th
