Jacqueline du Pre: A Biography - Carol Easton

Summit Books, 1989, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good+ - in Very Good+ DJ. Slightly ruffled at head of spine otherwise a very well presented copy.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Jacqueline du Pré, her enormous courage notwithstanding, was neither golden girl nor saint — away from her cello, she was completely and achingly human. As a child, she had been isolated by her phenomenal talent. As an adult, she was confined to the rarefied, insular concert world. During the last fifteen years of her life, she lived in the inexorably shrinking world of the invalid. The true story ofher life is as extraordinary as her talent.”

Jacket designed by Julie Metz. 224 pages.
