5.0 out of 5 stars An Imginary Week Tour, 2 Dec. 2000
Please note this is not a book about Scott's biography. if you are looking for a biographical sketch of Scott and the Walkers, go for "A deep shades of blue", which is rich in historical details mainly based on interviews with those happened to be around Scott (but not with Scott). This book is rather an attempt of the author to elaborate on the ordinary happenings of a certain imaginary week by drawing on some of the selected songs, mainly lyrics, of Scott. A unique experince for those lovers of critic on poetry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable guide to his great variety of songs, 1 Dec. 2000
This is something all Scott Walker fans are waiting for. The songs covered in the book start with those recorded in the late 1950's, and the author's explanation is not limited to his intepretation of songs but also extended to digging into the details of comparison with then contemporary songs and singers. Must be an indispensable guide to those who is waiting for some sort of direction guide to Scott's expnading interests.

5.0 out of 5 stars Misplaced and easy optimism, 23 Nov. 2000
This is a great book which neatly and persuasively summarises the danger of mispalced optimism and the impossibility of easily drawing a "historical lesson" by utilising a number of case studies. the author's conclusion that "Holocaust business" is in the "unintended symbionic relationship" with the "denial of holocaust" and doing a more harm is an ironical but a revealing point.
