No Regrets: The Life of Edith Piaf
No Regrets explores the iconic French singer’s meteoric rise to stardom, her tumultuous love affairs, and her struggles with addiction and illness. Piaf was a student of poetry and philosophy, active in the Resistance in WWII, a lyricist (including lyrics to “La Vie en Rose”), and mentor to younger singers including Yves Montand and Charles Aznavour. Carolyn Burke tells the story of how “the little sparrow” endures as a symbol of France and a source of inspiration to entertainers the world over.
