   schema:reviewBody ""Nana Mouskouri has been an international singing sensation for more than forty years. She has sung in her own, inimitable style on all the great stages of the world in a rich and astonishing career that began, against all the odds, when as a shy and nervous teenager she captivated audiences in the tavernas and nightclubs of her native Athens, singing not just the old favourite Greek folksongs but the popular songs from Europe and America that she had learnt from films and the radio." "Even as a young girl she had a passion for music, and loved to sing, but her childhood was not easy, dominated by the horrors of war and stripped of all comfort by a father who gambled away everything the family had. Yet her mother recognised her talent, and somehow secured a place for her at the Conservatory. Eventually Nana had to choose between her love of classical music and her fascination with popular song; Maria Callas, who admired her nightclub performances, gave her wise advice, and Nana's career took off." "This is her story, of a life founded on music, of international success, repeated tours through every European country, the United States, Canada, Australasia, Japan, consistently sold-out concerts everywhere she sings, and Gold Discs galore along the way. It is a life shared with many extraordinary figures who contributed to her career, including Quincy Jones, Harry Belafonte, Bob Dylan , Michel Legrand, Yves Mont and, and the British TV producer Yvonne Littlewood, largely responsible for introducing Nana to Great Britain." "It is also the intimate story of a wonderfully successful woman nevertheless racked by uncertainty and the torments of love, trying to balance her public person a with her role as wife and mother. The star we all know, who can fly to engagements by private jet, gives us more than a glimpse of the personal sacrifices behind it all. One of the most popular singers in the world, Nana Mouskouri here reaches out to her fans to share her life with them in a book rich in humanity and music."--BOOK JACKET." ;
