1 Horne, Lena, as told to Helen Arstein and Carlton Moss In Person -- Lena Horne
New York Greenberg: Publisher (c.1950) NO First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good- dj Illustrated by (book design) Marshall Lee 
(price-clipped) [nice clean copy, minimal shelfwear, spine slightly turned, slight fading to cloth at spine ends; jacket spine faded, uneven fading to rear panel, slight paper loss at top of spine, long tear (with tiny tape-repair) along rear hinge, also separated at bottom of rear foldover about halfway up from bottom, small missing piece at rear hinge]. (B&W photographs) The African-American singer/actress's first autobiography, which might be called the "credit to her race" version of her life to date, presenting her rise to stardom (movie stardom, that is) as "a beacon of hope, a shining symbol of success to hundreds of thousands of eager, ambitious youngsters throughout America [and] a wellspring of inspiration to their anxious parents." Although not quite as completely press-agented as you might expect, neither was it as candid about the career difficulties she faced due to racism as her 1965 book "Lena" would be. Then again, by 1965 her Hollywood career was well behind her, and she no longer had to play that particular game.
