It’s a TOP TEN! (Should I be embarrassed that I don’t know any of the other titles? Hmmm.) But hoorah for Alex Ross. He’s on the top ten list. I guess it’s a good one to be reading, eh? I can tell you I’m loving the book.

So read it! Really.

You can listen to a podcast at Amazon as well. I’m doing that at this very moment. (Which means it’s time to stop writing here!)


  1. do you have to be a fan of contemporary music to enjoy the book?? i’m not really a fan or an expert in contemporary music, it intimidates me a bit.

  2. Oh I don’t think you have to be a fan of 20th century music at all. I am finding it fascinating, and I can’t imagine any reader not finding it the same … even if there is some discomfort with more modern music. Really!
