Download and read online Prima Donna in PDF and EPUB Opera singer Sabine Conrad is the toast of nineteenth-century New York high society. A celebrated soprano with the voice of an angel, she is showered with adulation by her audiences and courted by wealthy patrons. But behind the scenes, her every move is controlled by a Svengali-like manager, Gideon Price. When her attempt to escape him goes tragically awry, she flees, leaving behind a grisly murder. Three years later, as Marguerite Olson, she has put aside the prima donna she once was to run a low-class theater in Seattle. Hidden among prostitutes, drunks, and miners, a desperate and determined Marguerite carefully guards the secrets of her old life—until her past returns to offer a terrifying proposition. Prima Donna captures both the glittering decadence of New York and the rough raunchy waterfront of Seattle, as Marguerite, caught between two worlds, must find the strength to confront the truth of her past and choose which voice defines her in this dark and harrowing novel. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Download and read online Death of a Prima Donna in PDF and EPUB Who really was Lea Kralj? What was the truth about the beautiful, mysterious, passionate diva who was admired and f-ted throughout her career and who thrilled opera house audiences in cities across Europe? What was her relationship with her mother? And what really happened behind the curtains of her fourth-floor flat by the river, at the height of her fame, during her last summer in Ljubljana? The only person who may be able to shed further light on the enigma of Lea Kralj is the narrator of this novel, a young Frenchman who first met her, in curious circumstances, in Madrid, and pursued her obsessively to Paris, Milan and eventually to Slovenia. Their relationship, neither sexual nor sycophantic, but one of mutual dependency, remains inexplicable to him. All he knows is that he will forever be dazzled by his memories of Lea Kralj's voice, her radiating presence and her beauty, and by certain aspects of her life, as tragic and doomed as any of the stage heroines whose roles she sang. As was apparent in her first novel to be translated into English, the internationally acclaimed Con Brio, Brina Svit writes with a rare poetic facility and rich musicality of expression. Her new novel is a stylistic tour de force which can only enhance her growing reputation. 'Consumes us like a bout of fever- Disconcerting and brilliant.' Elle, reviewing Con Brio. 'Brina Svit likes women who are enigmatic, elusive, those who always seem to be elsewhere, who have the appearance of of captive birds, wounded by some love affair or other, suspected of mysterious desires. ... [she] displays an exceptional gift for describing the beauty of her country, its green hills and valleys... just as can evoke douceur de vivre marvellously, and tapas in Madrid's Plaza Mayor, bicycle rides in Paris, visiting the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the magical mist of Milan, a bar called Marienbad.' JEAN-LUC DOUIN, Le Monde
