O'Meally has written that book," says Entertainment Weekly about this absorbing and authoritative account of the greatest jazz singer in history.4/5.

Amy Novesky's most recent picture book, Mister and Lady Day, is a lyrical ode to jazz great Billie Holiday and her pet dogs, This is Amy's fourth book on prominent female figures in cultural history; she has also penned Me, Frida (on artist Frida Khalo), Georgia in Hawaii (on artist Georgia O'Keefe), Imogen (on photographer Imogen Cunningham)/5.

Holiday's autobiography, Lady Sings the Blues, first published inis sketchy on details of her early life, but much was confirmed by Stuart Nicholson in his biography of the singer. Some historians have disputed Holiday's paternity, as a copy of her birth certificate in the Baltimore archives lists her father as "Frank DeViese.".

But while Lady Day doesn’t always benefit from the comparison (actress Ruby Dee, reading from Holiday’s autobiography, and narrator David Smyrl race through their lines as if they’ve got a train to catch), it surpasses Jazz in one vital respect: instead of constantly interrupting the music with voiceovers, Lady Day offers some of Holiday.
