The Marble Faun of Grey Gardens Book Description :

The Marble Faun of Grey Gardens is Jerry Torre's touching and at times haunting memoir about his teenage days as caretaker of Grey Gardens, the now-celebrated mansion chronicled in the iconic documentary Grey Gardens and two feature-length films. The book, co-written with film historian Tony Maietta, is a behind-the-scenes look at "Big Edie" and "Little Edie" and their bizarre and reclusive life of squalor amidst the tremendous wealth of East Hampton, the family bond that developed between Jerry and them, and the day everything was turned upside down forever with the arrival of documentary filmmakers Albert and David Maysles. What begins as a teenager coming upon what he assumed was an old, abandoned house takes on new dimensions when suddenly Edie a...

My Life at Grey Gardens 13 Months and Beyond Book Description :

"Lois Wright was a lifelong friend of both 'Big Edie' Bouvier Beale and 'Little Edie', and she went along for the ride when the Beales were immortalized in the 1976 cinema verite documentary Grey Gardens. Most fans of the film--if they know her at all-think of Lois as the silent party guest who gave Big Edie a little index card box. Although her role in the documentary was minimized because it complicated the Maysles' vision of the documentary, Lois played an important role in the Beales' lives, including the little-known fact that she actually lived in the house"--Cover, p. 4....

Grey Gardens Book Description :

One of the strangest and subtlest films ever made, the Maysles Brothers' 1975 documentary Grey Gardens today boasts as devoted a following as One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest or Harold and Maude. Shot at Grey Gardens, the dilapidated East Hamptons mansion of "Big Edie" and "Little Edie" Beale, aunt and cousin to Jackie Onassis, this classic of cinema verite tracks the Beales' eccentric and sequestered lives - which consist mostly of doing nothing, but with a mesmerizing zest and volubility. Little Edie's magical aphorisms ("Raccoons and cats become a little bit boring," she sighs towards the end of the film, "I mean for too long a time") are gems of unwitting camp, and between her observations, her costumes, the incredibly bizarre mother daughter tens...
