9780140156812: My Life - Piaf's Own Story

Miles Hordern sailed alone in a 28-foot sloop across the Southern Ocean from New Zealand to Patagonia and back - a voyage of 13,000 nautical miles across the largest stretch of water on earth and a region of icebergs, gales and high seas. Six weeks later he made landfall on the coast of Chile and, after a chance meeting, embarked on a 1000-mile cruise southwards to survey channels and fjords in Patagonia, one of the last uncharted areas in the world. From Chile he sailed north on the Humboldt current, then west through the tropics on the return passage to New Zealand, arriving home some 18 months after he had left.

From Library Journal:

Shortly before her death in 1963, the great French singer dictated an autobiographical sketch to journalist Noli. Not intended as a comprehensive history, this previously unpublished volume offers affecting and sometimes melodramatic recollections of Piaf's celebrated yet tragic life. Chapters about her rise from poverty, her philosophical and religious convictions, and her legendary generosity are mixed with chapters on aspects of her life that attracted scandal (e.g., love affairs, drug addiction, alcoholism, profligate lifestyle, etc.). Believing in her eternal quest for love, Piaf defends herself without apology. Translator Crosland, who wrote the first non-French biography of Piaf ( Piaf , LJ 10/1/85), clarifies the text, fills in gaps, and tempers exaggerations in a series of end notes. This touching, romantic memoir is recommended for general audiences.
