A tiny, black-clad figure with a scorchingly powerful voice who dominated stages around the world for almost thirty years, the legendary Edith Piaf still reigns supreme more than four decades after her death. In this powerful book, David Bret - Britain's foremost authority on the French music-hall - tells Piaf's amazing rags-to-riches story with unprecedented detail, honesty and compassion. Friends, composers, lovers, colleagues and the father of Piaf's only child have confided in him. Skilfully analysing every aspect of this great artiste's life, he paints a vivid portrait of the celebrated chanteuse whose triumphs and tragedies were shared by an adoring public. Illustrated with photographs from the author's collection and containing a complete discography, "Piaf" also features detailed appendices of her films, stage-plays and all stage and screen tributes to date, making this the most comprehensive and up-to-date biography available. "Piaf" is the ultimate tribute to the undisputed genius of a remarkable woman. This is the definitive biography - now in paperback. It ties in with a major new film on Piaf's Life. The legendary singer's life is vividly portrayed.
