「人們也許會說我不能唱歌,但沒人說我不曾歌唱過。」

儘管缺乏歌唱天賦,紐約名媛佛羅倫斯‧佛斯特‧珍金絲(Florence Foster Jenkins)還是成為美國最有名的女高音之一,其中最令人津津樂道的是她在卡內基廳的演唱會銷售一空。

1868年出生在美國賓州一個富有的家庭,Florence曾是年輕而有天份的鋼琴家,但她的人生因為一場錯誤的婚姻而陷入困境─她放棄了音樂的夢想,而成為一位鋼琴教師。直到父親去世,留給她大筆的遺產,讓她在紐約重新開始。

她設立了一個業餘的音樂俱樂部,並遇見了此生的摯愛─英國舞台劇演員St. Clair Bayfield支持並協助他經營音樂事業。

在76歲那年,Florence帶給世界不小的震撼,也為自己的的音樂生涯帶來高潮,她終於實現了自己的夢想─在美國的音樂殿堂卡內基廳開演唱會。

And yet nothing could prepare the world for the astonishing climax of her career when, at the age of seventy-six, she performed at the most hallowed concert hall in America. In Florence Foster Jenkins, Jasper Rees tells her extraordinary story, which inspired the film starring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant, and directed by Stephen Frears. This remarkable book also includes Nicholas Martin's funny,
