Lesley 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 ' of the most fascinating biographies of recent years.'


Lesley Stephenson was an opera- and concert-singer, working with conductors and producers such as Pierre Boulez, Paul Daniel, Francois Rochaix and David Freeman. She is currently a freelance writer for several newspapers such as The London Times and the Tages Anzeiger, and also works as an editor for several international firms. She is a certified teacher of the F.M. Alexander Technique, and director of the Centre for Personal Performance Enhancement in Zurich.


Presented in direct and highly readable prose. SymphonyNOW The man driven by his will could be cordial and at the same time hard as nails; the numerous women in his life barely knew of each other's existence. It is exactly these intermediate shades which make this carefully researched book one of the most fascinating biographies of the last years. Spiegel Magazine
