The biography of Charles Dumont by Charles Dumont , illustrated by José Correa and accompanied by 2 compact discs.

1960, Edith Piaf leaves the clinic, she has not sung for a year, this eclipse is eating away at her, she wants to find her audience again. He needs a repertoire to return to the stage. Charles Dumont visits Edith, with Michel Vaucaire to present Non, je ne regrette rien . Charles has little hope. Yet Edith listens, asks to play again, again and again. Yes, that's it, that's the song he needs. The song that will shake the world, the song that will mark his return, after his health problems and a year of absence. Charles Dumont gave him one of the greatest successes of song.

They sang Les Amants together in 1962, then Charles waited until 1973 to return to the stage and experience the success that we know, for forty years. Deep France, provincial France and Parisian France fall in love with Charles' love songs. We had forgotten that the epicenter of humanity was called love and that a song of the same name had a natural audience.
