"The intimate, often harrowing life-story of one of the world's greatest singers. Jean Cocteau said of Edith Piaf that she was a nightingale, and that her singing reminded him more of the wind, the sun and the stars than the voice of a woman. Here was one of the top international singers of her day, popular around the world for such hits as 'Non, je ne regrette rien'. How was it possible for Piaf, 'the Kid Sparrow' from an obscure Parisian background, to rise to such heights?" "Margaret Crosland's definitive biography sheds new light on the phenomenon that was Piaf, enlarging on and in some cases correcting the half-truths provided by Piaf in her two autobiographies, The Wheel of Fortune and My Life. Piaf's rise to international stardom, her lifelong addiction to alcohol and drugs including morphine, and her many turbulent love affairs are documented, as are her friendships with such stars as Cocteau, Marlene Dietrich, Maurice Chevalier, Yves Montand and Charlie Chaplin. Crosland concludes with a moving description of her early death at the age of forty-seven, when some two million fans followed the funeral procession to Pere Lachaise cemetery."--BOOK JACKET
Raymond Radiguet : a biographical study with selections from his work by Margaret Crosland ( Book )
5 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The passionate philosopher : a Marquis De Sade reader by Sade ( Book )
5 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Yet, in addition to his so-called 'obscene' writing, Sade wrote with equal fervour about idealized people and democratic societies. He was indeed a passionate philosopher, a man typical in his own way of his times but eager to pass on to later centuries his incandescent ideas about human behaviour. Following her Introduction, Margaret Crosland provides astute commentaries on her selections, and finally a Chronology and Bibliography
