Canít Help Singing:
The Life of Eileen Farrell


"Can't Help Singing: The Life of Eileen Farrell is the autobiography of the Irish lass from New England who became, surprising even herself,
one of the greatest sopranos of the midcentury. It's written with Brian Kellow, executive editor--and superb columnist--of Opera News magazine."
--Boston Herald


"Frequently laugh-out loud funny as well as informative."
--Booklist


"If the test of an autobiography is whether the reader comes to know (and like) the subject, then Farrell succeeds admirably with this frank and charming account of her extraordinary career."
--Library Journal


"This is the kind of memoir everyone should be able to write but few are. It can be read in an evening or two, and you will be sorry when it's over."
--American Record Guide
