The wheel of fortune; the autobiography of Edith Piaf by Edith Piaf( Book )

43 editions published between 1958 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Edith Piaf's life is almost as famous as her work. From her birth (which she liked to tell people was in the Parisian streets, her mother shielded by two gendarmes) to her death (when her husband allegedly drove her corpse from the Cannes hospital where she died to her flat, lest her fans think that she had abandoned Paris) her life story was a rags-to-riches tale like no other." "A street singer discovered by the nightclub owner who gave her the stage name Piaf (Sparrow), she rose to become a national heroine. Friends with Charlie Chaplin, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Jean Cocteau, Maurice Chevalier and Marlene Dietrich, she was also at various times chief suspect for the murder of her mentor, an alcoholic and a drug addict. But she always seemed to embody, and still does, something of the spirit of Paris. Following her death in 1963, forty thousand people descended on Pere Lachaise Cemetery for her funeral, and, forty years on, millions remain fans of her music."--Jacket
