I found it hard to locate a book which would tell me more about Edith Piaf. Most seem to be in French. This book describes her life from her early beginnings, her marriages and friendships. There are illustrations in the centre of the book. It tells of the tours she made and how important it was to her to keep singing. Easy to read and pertinent.
Like most people I love to visit Paris and have done so on more than one occasion. At times there is a distinct lack of English at the majority of 'sights' and 'tourist' destinations. I had a desire to learn more beyond the tourist leaflets and booklets I could find. This book is a very readable explanation of the times of Paris from early beginnings. It also contains many illustrations. A must read before you go...or on your return!
