Drawing on exclusive interviews and new information, Peter Richmond delivers a complex, compelling portrait of the singer Duke Ellington dubbed the Queen'. With her platinum cool and superheated whisper, Peggy Lee sold 20 million records, made more money than Mickey Mantle and, with Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby, presided unchallenged over music's greatest generation. From a North Dakota childhood plagued by parental alcoholism and abuse to international superstardom, Richmond follows the incomparable Miss Lee with sensitivity and grace.'
