Summary "Eileen Joyce: A Portrait is a frank and revealing biography of one of Australia's most dazzling musical talents. During the 1940s and 50s, concert pianist, recording artist, radio performer, fashion leader and film star Eileen Joyce enjoyed enormous critical acclaim and a popularity, bordering on adulation. In this carefully researched and written biography, Richard Davis reveals for the first time Eileen's true origins and her struggle to make a career against formidable odds. New evidence about the highs and lows of her private life is presented frankly using information never before released by her family. Her personality is put under the microscope, her talent analysed and her place in Australian and international musical history evaluated."--BOOK JACKET.
