I Only Mark the Hours that Shine – Edie Beale

Being a Grey Gardens devotee, I’m looking forward to reading the newly published diaries of Edie Beale, beautifully titled “I Only Mark the Hours that Shine“. Edie was a dramatic young woman, living in a fantasy world, prone to extremes and romanticism. The diary covers her late childhood, when she and her family lived an affluent privileged life and before she and her mother became the most famous recluses in America. The book is so far only available in hard cover from Amazon US but fingers crossed it makes its way over here.

My favourite photo of Edie, wearing a dress that was replicated perfectly in the movie starring Drew Barrymore.
