About the book:
Every generation or so an opera singer attains the kind of public adulation and affection usually reserved for film stars or pop singers. Luciano Pavarotti reached this level of fame: he was the most celebrated tenor of all time, his concerts attended by thousands, his records selling millions of copies. In Pavarotti: My World, he talks candidly about his successes and trials, from his forays into popular music and his performances in China, to the boos he endured at La Scala, from the near-fatal illness of his youngest daughter, to his worldwide efforts to convert people to the joys of classical music and opera. Pavarotti's acclaimed autobiography shows us how this great artist felt about his extraordinary voice, how he saw his work and how he regarded his extraordinary position in the world of music and entertainment. Generously illustrated with photographs taken from Pavarotti's private collection, this is an intimate, absorbing and wonderfully honest account of an astonishing talent.
