THE MARBLE FAUN OF GREY GARDENS

Jerry Torre and Tony Maietta

(Querelle Press, 2018)

 The Marble Faun of Grey Gardens  is a touching and at times haunting memoir about Jerry Torre's 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, written by Torre and 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.
