Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungLesley Stephenson worked closely with Paul Sacher for fifteen years as his ghost writer and translator. Through her work, and in dozens of lengthy interviews with this intensely private man, she managed to break through his legendary mask of reserve, accessing facts that were previously unknown even to family members and close friends. This biography of Sacher has been described by The London Times as 'enthralling', and by Germany's prestigious magazine DER SPIEGEL as '...one of the most fascinating biographies of recent years.'
PortraitLesley Stephenson was an opera- and concert-singer, working with conductors and producers such as Pierre Boulez, Paul Daniel, Francois Rochaix and David Freeman.
