A biography of Jacques Brel , written by Martin Pénet , illustrated by José Correa , accompanied by a compact disc.

Arriving in Paris in 1953, Jacques Brel took many years before finding a personal style and attracting a large audience. However, he decided to stop performing in 1966, at the height of his fame, leaving behind the memory of an extraordinary man of the stage. This skinned soul expressed his rages and his passions with a sincerity rarely equaled. He made the singing tour a veritable marathon and inhabited his characters with a formidable power of visual evocation. His writing, direct and caustic, paints genre pictures, a vast social satire serving a few privileged themes such as friendship and death.
