Huffington Post - about 1 year
"This kind of life like everybody else's kind of life: it's killing us." - Charles Bukowski The afternoon is turning increasingly dusky, and outside the window, October reds have given in to November blues. I hold my tea closer to my chest as a familiar little tune surfaces in my head. Juliette Greco's heartbreaking voice: "Les feuilles mortes se ramassent à la pelle" ... © 2014 -2015 Yara Zgheib, All Rights Reserved Prévert's poem was first sung in the twilight of World War II, in a Paris overrun with fallen leaves, fallen rubble, fallen lives.

Juliette Greco to debutantes: 'Learn to say no'
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
The 88-year-old star of "la chanson francaise", famed for her performances of texts penned by the likes of philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre and poet Jacques Prevert, began her farewell tour Friday at the Printemps de Bourges music festival. Clad, as always, in a black dress, with her eyes rimmed with kohl, Greco opened the festival in central France. "It's a very good motivation, it spares you a lot of horrible stuff, like, for example, singing a song you don't want to sing just for the money," said Greco, who had a long-running affair with jazz musician Miles Davis and counted Sartre and feminist author Simone de Beauvoir among her friends.
