The biography of Eartha Kitt by Bruno Théol , illustrated by Grazia La Padula and accompanied by 2 compact discs.
Before becoming Eartha Kitt , young Eartha Mae is a desperate mixed-race girl. In all her nightmares, and she seems to live in a permanent nightmare, "Eartha Mae is a 'yella gal' , ugly, rejected, unloved."
The contrast is striking with the self-confident Eartha Kitt , an American star of the 1950s. But duality is permanent in this extraordinary personality, dancer at 16, noticed on all European stages at 20, disco singer at the end of the seventies and crooner around the world until his last breath in 2008 .
