Rainbow: The stormy life of Judy Garland is the book, written by Christopher Finch, that became probably one of the most completely satisfying Judy Garland’s biographies.
The author writes not only about Garland’s life in well researched, eloquent prose, hi also provides a broad overview of the world and times in which Garland had been worked and lived. It’s really good book on one of the greatest entertainers of how she lived her life.
Judy Garland wrote about herself: “No wonder I was strange. Imagine whipping out of bed, dashing over to the doctor’s office, lying down on a torn leather couch, telling my troubles to an old man who couldn’t hear, who answered with an accent I couldn’t understand, and then dashing to Metro to make movie love to Mickey Rooney.”
