Throughout her explosive and tempestuous career, Edith Piaf cast a spell over all who came in contact with her. This tiny person, the little sparrow as she was called, who stood only four foot ten and performed in simple black, was a force of nature. After her, popular singing would never be the same. This classic biography documents her meteoric rise from street urchin to living legend, whose power and influence were so great that she formed an entire generation of actors and singers, including Yves Montand and Charles Aznavour. Today, when you think of the essence of France, you think of the Eiffel Tower, perfume, love, fine wine, and also Edith Piaf.
