Marguerite Piazza's auto-biography reads more like a popular novel. Pagliacci Has Nothing On me! recounts her rise to stardom in Radio, TV, Grand Opera and as a Las Vegas headliner from her New Orleans childhood as the grand-daughter of immigrants. Miss Piazza reveals fascinating stories about...
the very birth of television and the Golden Age of Entertainment. The book delves behind the scenes with celebrities, managers, producers, socialites, her four husbands, six children, President Nixon, the McCarthy era and her near death experience.
Variety once wrote that she was "an opera star who knows how to please both the longhairs and the crew cuts." And the broad appeal of her book is no exception.
Pagliacci Has Nothing On Me! is a mesmerizing and sometimes harrowing journey through the life and times of an unforgettable Diva.
Coauthor Marguerite Bonnett is Miss Piazza's daughter and the author of several screenplays, working in both design and production on several feature films.
