Item description for A Cry from the Heart: The Biography of Edith Piaf by Margaret Crosland...

Thisdefinitive biography sheds new light on the phenomenon that was Edith Piaf, enlarging on and, in some cases, correcting the half-truths provided by Piaf in her two autobiographies. Piaf's rise to international stardom, her lifelong addiction to alcohol and heroin, and her turbulent love affairs are documented, as are her friendships with such stars as Jean Cocteau, Marlene Dietrich, Maurice Chevalier, Yves Montand, and Charlie Chaplin. This detailed account concludes with a moving description of Piaf's early death at the age of 47, when some two million fans followed the funeral procession through the streets of Paris to Pere Lachaise cemetery.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Cry from the Heart: The Biography of Edith Piaf?

Oh dear.......  Sep 12, 2008
A Cry from the Heart: The Biography of Edith Piaf by Margaret Crosland

Where to start? I don't know why Margaret Crosland bothered to write this book. It is obvious that she hates her subject, Edith Piaf. It is so badly written, inaccurately researched, and so boring, it took me far too long to have wasted my time on this book. There is bitterness in this book, I don't understand why Crosland took on a subject which repelled her. i can't write more than this on a book originally published in the 1980's,
and which should have stayed there. I am just sorry that Piaf has been so maligned. She doesn't deserve it.
