For millions of people, the great soprano Maria Callas (1923-1977) remains the focus of such unparalleled fascination that there is still no higher praise for singers than "...the best since Callas." In this biography, Callas' career is brought brilliantly to life, from her transformation from a chubby, painfully shy girl into a magnificent, celebrated soprano, to her conflict with her larger-than-life image. Huffington makes this struggle, which was at the center of her life, also the center of the biography. Using a wealth of previously unpublished material and numerous first-hand interviews, Huffington documents Callas' interminable conflict with her mother, her deeply emotional relationship with her voice, the gradual unraveling of her first marriage, her passionate love affair with of Aristotle Onassis, her agony and humiliation at his leaving her, and her secret abortion.

About the Author:

Arianna Huffington, a nationally syndicated columnist and author of Picasso, How to Overthrow the Government, and The Fourth Instinct, divides her time between Los Angeles and Washington, D. C.

Review:

The most readable and by far the most illuminating biography to date of Callas the woman...Compulsive and convincing reading (The Times (UK), (London))

The author has entered the complex and contradictory mind of Maria Callas in an extraordinary way, and the result is a powerful story told movingly yet without exaggeration. It is unquestionably an important book, and surely the finest biography of Callas ever written. (John Ardoin, Author of The Callas Legacy)

She will have the people of Cailornia in her heart. I know that becasue i experienced it. (Pauline Lubens San Jose Mercury News)
