Format: Hardcover
The book is written by Carusos wife, who he married 3 years before he died . She describes therefore in great detail and citing many letters by him their life and what happened, how is character was etc. She carefully leaves his private life before their marriage out (get this in "my father and my family" by Enrico Caruso jr.:-), but nevertheless - the book is great to read. The first book she wrote about him, shortly after his death (wings of song) is good too and is may be a little bit closer to truth. But to read Carusos letters in this book here is already worth the while....

Who would know more about Enrico Caruso than his wife! This book is about a man who KNEW what he was doing, how he was doing it and WHY he did it. Caruso's letters will touch your heart because he wrote them in a initable language and you will know the personal side of this great tenor. Dorthy Caruso was an excellent writer gives you an up-close and personal look in to his life and discography. There is also a very interesting appendix in the back of the book. Enrico Caruso didn't live forever but his singing did and still does today. The world will never forget him. He will always be in our hearts. I hope he is singing in Heaven.
A sound man! A sound book!

A wonderful account from his wife's point of view. Caruso's letters give you a true insight to his personality. A very enjoyable reading.

Mrs. Caruso did not have the years to give a complete story of his life but I felt her love and admiration was sincere. She seemed to truly love him for such a short time. I appreciated that she told everything in detail. Caruso died too soon and mainly because the medical profession lacked the knowledge they needed to save him. I am looking forward to reading the next book by his son,
