From the Publisher

description and review excerpt

This first English-language biography of Swedish tenor Jussi Bjoerling incorporates recollections by widow Anna-Lisa Bjoerling, information from the family archives, and material from operatic archives the world over. Extensive interviews with former colleagues, associates, ad friends provide further insights into Bjoerling's life and career. A chronology of his career, compiled by Harald Henrysson, is also included.

"Jussi is the first sweeping, authentic, honest biogrphy of the complex man considered the finest tenor of the 20th century. This is deliciously detailed, serving up the tenor wrats-and-all, in a passionate, detailed account of his life, his art, and why the memory of the man and his glorious voice rings shiningly 36 years after his death."--Brian Richard Boylan, music critic and founder of the Lyric Opera of Chicago News
