Tamsin Grieg reads from Susie Boyt's tribute to her screen idol Judy Garland.

Susie reflects on her unshakeable passion for Judy and on the other unshakeable infatuations of her life, including an embarrassing girlhood crush on a female teacher. Then, when she finally meets Judy's daughter Liza, Susie wonders why neither of them can bring themselves even to mention her.
