Description
This anthology of composer Ned Rorem's acerbic musings on music, people, and life—a co-winner of the 2002 ASCAP-Deems Taylor Award in the Symphonic Books Category—surveys the full range of his Pulitzer Prize–winning literary stature and reflects the evolution of his sensibilities. The first part is devoted to memoir, including ruminations on being alone and on becoming a composer. The second part focuses on music and the individuals who make it, from Bartók and Ravel to Edith Piaf and the Beatles. The final part consists of portraits and memorials of such figures as Martha Graham, Paul Bowles, Marc Blitzstein, Frank O'Hara, Allen Ginsberg, and Truman Capote. The book includes a lengthy conversation on the art of the diary.

"A well-assorted selection from Rorem's diaries and criticism which is quite simply about as perfect a volume for the civilized reader's night table as I can think of. The chapter on Truman Capote is worth the price of the book."—New York Observer
