dancer of the folies bergère in paris (1925)
Just started reading this excellent biography of Sarah Bernhardt. It was written by Gold & Fizdale, who also wrote Misia Sert’s biography (which I cannot recommend enough). I’ve heard this called the best biography of La Bernhardt in English, and although I’ve only just started reading it, at the very least I can report that it has some wonderful photos, some of which I had never seen before!
UPDATE: I finally finished reading this on my way home from vacation last week, and I recommend it highly! So many good anecdotes from her life.
I have this book too. It really is fantastic!
