This is the first of three memoirs written by Eartha Kitt. Thursday’s Child was originally published in 1956 and covers Eartha’s childhood and early career. This book is what inspired the name of David Bowie’s song Thursday’s Child.
Eartha Kitt (1927-2008) was an American singer, actress, comedienne, dancer, and activist known for her highly distinctive singing style and her 1953 recordings of C'est si bon and the Christmas novelty song Santa Baby , both of which reached the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Kitt began her career in 1942 and appeared in the 1945 original Broadway theatre production of the musical Carib Song. In the early 1950s, she had six US Top 30 hits, including Uska Dara and I Want to Be Evil . She starred as Catwoman in the third and final season of the television series Batman in 1967.
Eartha continued her career up until her death in 2008, appearing in both stage and film projects as well as lending her voice to several prominent Disney projects including The Emperor’s New Groove .
