No Regrets : the life of Edith Piaf by Carolyn Burke
Found on the Adult Non-fiction shelves at 920 PIA
This attempts to be an objective account of Edith Piaf’s life – and it is – but it is not a very clear one. There is no overview, all the people’s names are confusing.
However, if one is interested in particular songs, the author explains who wrote them, and what was going on in Piaf’s life at the time. Most songs were written for Piaf, by the best songwriters in France, so they really express her passions and struggles.
