Twenty years after her death, the fervor Barbara kindles remains intact. Kervéan’s biography is just like this unique artist: incandescent and free.

This biography does not present any new “scoops”—we already know Barbara’s life very well—but rather the synthesis of what we know about her, what she gave to us. From her childhood in the 1930s to her activism in her final years, Jean-François Kervéan revisits each decade of the...

This biography does not present any new “scoops”—we already know Barbara’s life very well—but rather the synthesis of what we know about her, what she gave to us. From her childhood in the 1930s to her activism in her final years, Jean-François Kervéan revisits each decade of the singer’s life, which mixes with the biggest problems of our time: AIDS, prisons, migrants… But the biographer also takes a more personal turn, which will be fascinating for all those who love Barbara. He draws us into his own memories, such as the famous concert at Pantin in 1981, and explores the source of the emotions that continued to be evoked by the songs of the “tall brunette,” on whom time has not taken its toll. A sentimental and literary biography of Barbara like no other.
