The Grey Gardens Obsession

My Grey Gardens obsession, which waxes and wanes as new information appears is being revved up by a new find by my buddy, Sam. The discovery that the book My Life at Grey Gardens by Lois Wright was just purchased by our library is certainly big news. Although I have no idea where they found it...I hadn't known it existed until Sam told me about it. I saw the film a few years ago and was absolutely amazed by it. If you have not seen it yet- make it tops on your list. The Broadway musical became a huge hit and the movie is still slated for a 2008 release. (I check IMDB for updates almost weekly). So intense is my love for the Beale women that I use Edie's picture on my Myspace page and break into "Tea for Two" at any given point in the day. Of course, breaking into song is not uncommon for me. I always wanted to live in a musical. Anyway, it is unfortunate that my pile of books is so high and I won't be able to start My Life at Grey Gardens for a week, but I can't wait. Until then, I'm still working on Atonement, slowly but surely. I'm still reading Promise Not to Tell at lunch breaks and at night I'm reading Now You're One of Us which is freaky and I like it. Very Rosemary's Baby-ish.
