Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

The recent Academy Award-winning film La Vie en Rose has renewed interest in the iconic singer Edith Piaf and how she influenced an entire generation of French performers such as Yves Montand and Charles Aznavour. Lange, who has written both fiction and non-fiction in the past, published this biography back in 1979, and it has been re-released since it has been considered the definitive book on Piaf's life and artistry. Plenty of photographs and drawings are included, which should give those unfamiliar with Piaf a more vivid account of why her legend has endured.
