Praise

“The Queen: God bless her. Anyone who loved Dinah Washington as I did will appreciate this book by Nadine Cohodas, which beautifully documents the joys and sorrows of the life of this lady who was a peer of her contemporaries Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, and Billie Holliday.”
–George Wein, author of Myself Among Others and founder of the Newport Jazz Festival

“Dinah Washington died at thirty-nine, but packed so much life and incident into every moment it’s a wonder that Nadine Cohodas could sort it out; the marital adventures alone might have daunted a less avid biographer. Nor does she slight her music. Dinah could make every kind of song vital and personal, no matter the context–jazz, blues, swing, pop, r&b, or r&r. Cohodas captures the Queen in all her obstinate spitfire glory.”
–Gary Giddins, author of Weather Bird and Bing Crosby: A Pocketful of Dreams
