BearManor Media is proud to announce that, to commemorate the centennial this year of Judy Garland’s birth, it will publish two new books on her in 2023.

The first will be Judy Garland: Splendor and Downfall of a Legend by Bertrand Tessier. A French biography of the famed American film star and singer first published by Archipel (Paris) in 2019, it has been translated by Garland scholar Lawrence Schulman, who has also provided a Foreword.

Bertrand Tessier, born on July 13, 1960, in Nantes, France, is a journalist, author and director. He has published fifteen biographies and directed twenty documentaries devoted to film stars, most notably from the Hollywood golden age. With Myriam Brough, he created California Prod, which produces documentaries for television. He lives in Paris and Los Angeles.

The second work on Judy Garland to be published by BearManor Media in 2023 will be entitled Garland – That’s Beyond Entertainment – Reflections on Judy Garland, a work by Lawrence Schulman that will regroup his extensive writings on Garland – articles, reviews, liner notes, interviews, program notes, talks, prefaces – written between 1993 and 2023. The book will contain a Foreword by John H. Haley and an Afterword by James Fisher.

Born on June 11, 1950 in the Bronx, Lawrence Schulman, a graduate of Stony Brook University (New York), the Sorbonne (Paris) and CREAR, a school for film and video studies in Gouvieux, France, is a music producer, critic and translator who has produced, compiled and written the liner notes for numerous CD sets devoted to Judy Garland in the past three decades. He has also written about Garland for the ARSC Journal since 1994. He lives on Mount Desert Island in Maine.

The covers of both books have been designed by Sarah Joseph.
