Me and My Shadows: A Family Memoir is a 1998 memoir written by Lorna Luft, the daughter of singer-actress Judy Garland.


The book, which recounts her mother's life, Luft's life with Garland and dealing with life after her mother's death, was a New York Times best seller and published by Simon & Schuster.

Lorna Luft notes on her mother's performance in another interview: "There's one song that truly belongs only to my mother..." Garland became the song she sang and sadly enough was unable to see herself climbing the parable of the rainbow. She had often said that she couldn't believe in the "rainbow" but friends and family recapped later that she was too busy living it.[]

Also from another interview, Lorna says warmly: "I think what my mother loved most of all was that people wanted to hear her sing... and they always will."[]


The book was adapted into an Emmy Award-winning ABC miniseries, Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows, which aired February 25 and 26, 2001 and later released on DVD. It starred Tammy Blanchard as the teenage Judy and Judy Davis as the adult Judy.
