Fanny & Adelaide : the lives of the remarkable Kemble sisters by Ann Blainey( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fanny never quite forgave Adelaide her success. As Fanny's own marriage disintegrated, her jealousy surged, and her biased appraisals of her sister's singing have unfairly tarnished Adelaide's opera reputation. In many ways, however, as Ms. Blainey shows, the sisters loved each other fiercely. Their complex and fascinating relationship is one of the major themes of this grand biography, based on extensive research and exclusive access to hundreds of family letters."--Jacket

Marvelous Melba : the extraordinary life of a great diva by Ann Blainey( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"So great were her personal excesses that her life was clouded by a bitter divorce and the loss of custody of her only child. But she reigned over the operatic world in England, the United States, and Australia for well over a quarter century, her reviews superb, her diamonds and dresses fabulous, her lovers numerous. Marvelous Melba explores her life - the highs and lows, the personal losses and professional triumphs - in an important new biography."--Jacket
