“The primary biography of the Parisian singer and phenomenon Yvette Guilbert.”
- Z. D. Akron
"[Guilbert’s] is an art that defies classification....Her voice is not a musical instrument - and I believe it is as musical now as ever it was. Yet there is no singer of our time who would not double his present artistic stature if he could borrow half of Guilbert's genius."
- Walter Legge, ON AND OFF THE RECORD, p.49
