Summary: "Born into the twin shadows of a famous mother and older sister, Lorna Luft was always referred to as Judy Garland's "other daughter." This is the first insider portrait of one of Hollywood's most celebrated families - and a remarkably intimate and loving chronicle of an astonishing childhood and a struggle to overcome a legacy of fame and self-destructive behavior." "With unsparing candor, Lorna Luft reveals a rare story of a little girl, her half-sister Liza Minnelli, and baby brother trying desperately to hang on to the mother whose life seemed destined to burn brightly but briefly. A beautiful and brilliant performer, Judy was a warm and funny woman who loved her children unconditionally - but she was also the victim of a powerful dependence on alcohol and prescription drugs, which eventually claimed her life."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
