Bianca Castafiore, La Diva Du Vingtieme Siecle. Mireille Moon
Description of Bianca Castafiore, La Diva Du Vingtieme Siecle from the back cover of the book."This work traces the course of Castafiore at the end of three decades of a career that could not be more triumphant. The story of this exceptional catatrice reflects the social evolution of women and fashion of her time: Maggy Rouff, Christian Dior, Coco Chanel, Roger Vivier, and many others, are present. The author also shows with sensitivity that the emotional life of Hergé is not foreign to the transformation of the diva, suddenly rejuvenated, more feminine. A caricatural vision of the opera singer, the Milanese Nightingale turns into a capricious woman, exclusively dedicated to her art, but also an enterprising and sympathetic fighter capable of nailing dictators and being moved by her reunion with Haddock. Mireille Moons decodes, with perspicacity and joyful ardor, this art of singing coupled with an art of living generously offered to us by Bianca, who has become the rival of La Callas. A book to laugh, absolutely!"
