Words Without Music – Philip Glass

WORDS WITHOUT MUSIC

A Memoir

By Philip Glass

Illustrated. 416 pages. Liveright Publishing. $29.95

A world-renowned composer of symphonies, operas, and film scores, Philip Glass has, almost single-handedly, crafted the dominant sound of late-twentieth-century classical music. Yet here in Words Without Music, he creates an entirely new and unexpected voice, that of a born storyteller and an acutely insightful chronicler, whose behind-the-scenes recollections allow readers to experience those moments of creative fusion when life so magically merged with art.
