Reviews

Darryl W. Bullock's charming FLORENCE! FOSTER!! JENKINS!!! is just about right for those who want to know more about the world's worst opera singer . . . thoroughly readable and entertaining. This appealing little biography--which arrives just as a film version of its heroine's story, starring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant, has been released in the US--is warmhearted and delightful. At its core is a touching love story, as well as a message about the human spirit.--Alexander McCall Smith
It's a fascinating, exquisitely written book that will make you a fan if not of her singing, than of her times of when Americans could redefine themselves and make themselves into whatever they wanted to be. It's quite a beauty.--Tony Norman
Bullock admiringly relates [Florence's] remarkable life and story with great verve.
This is an entertaining little biography, well grounded in cited research . . . of the wealthy New York socialite who made herself into a musical cult figure
Just in time for the Hollywood blitz, author Darryl Bullock's biography of the 'world's worst opera singer' digs into Jenkins' ancestry, marriages, social life, opera career, and her hilariously scathing reviews...she sounds like a piano falling down the stairs. But what she lacked in talent, she made up for with moxie.
