Il nous faut de l'amour"
Buchet / Chastel
ISBN 978-2-283-02888-9

Il nous faut de l'amourOlivier Bellamy, a French journalist with a daily programme on Radio Classique, who has written books about Martha Argerich and Teresa Berganza, has written a book with me/about me: Il nous faut de líamour, published by Buchet Chastel. It is in French!
It seems very self-indulgent to have written a book about my career and life- it wasnít my idea! But after spending hours looking back and remembering people and events, I feel very fortunate and very privileged. Iíve worked with some wonderful people and made some very good friends. Several people should have received credits in the book, which suddenly came out very quickly after being in the pipeline for a couple of years. Without all the work done by Marina Lewandowski on this website, it would have been impossible to publish a discography. And special thanks are due to my friend Sue Jones and her husband Paul, for putting all my performances on to a database from which we could extract a list of operas, colleagues and conductors. My agent, Robert Rattray, who looked after me all my performing life until he vanished across the Pond, should have a chapter to himself for being a very caring, shrewd and wise Manager, steering me through some choppy waters. And my family has been endlessly patient and supportive. I apologise if this sounds as though Iíve won an Oscar; I couldnít really be more surprised if I had!  Felicity
