Synopsis:

This is the true story of an incredible romance, a penetrating memoir of two months in the last year of Judy Garland's life, told by her unlikely lover - a man who found himself suddenly in a relationship with his idol. "Will you marry me? I never asked anyone before...but...will you marry me?" The voice belonged to songwriter John Meyer: the woman asked, his idol; a tarnished icon flickering weakly in the shadows of self-destructive abuse. The answer? "Why, yes...if you want me." And so Judy Garland joined her life with John Meyer, a songwriter with an entertainment slot in a piano bar on Manhattan's Upper East Side. To many, she was the wistful girl dancing down the yellow brick road; the wondrous young woman singing on the St. Louis trolley or, smeared in tears, on the apron of a darkened stage. Meyer tells how he and Garland fell for each other: how he valiantly tried to save her from pills, alcohol and her own erratic behaviour. And, how he grappled with something he was totally unprepared for: romance with his idol - a near mythic, tragic figure who had become flesh and blood.
