Music from Dance, Gladys, Dance – Edith Piaf

Excerpt from Dance, Gladys, Dance

I offered to buy the phonograph, but Mr. Hausselman refused. I travelled around the city on the bus and bought 78 records at second-hand shops: Sarah Vaughn, Eartha Kitt, Edith Piaf, and Billie Holiday.

One night, the left speaker gave a small sigh and quit. I didn’t attempt to see if it could be fixed. The music sounded as though it came from far away and I preferred it that way.
