The Intimate Memoir of Jacqueline du Pré. Later printing [4th]. From the cover: “From the Moment Jacqueline Du Pré first held a cello at the age of five, it was clear that she had an extraordinary gift. At sixteen, when she made her professional debut, she was hailed as one of the world’s most talented and exciting young musicians. Ten years later, she stopped playing virtually overnight when multiple sclerosis removed the feeling in her hands just before a concert. It took fourteen years for the crippling disease to kill her.”
