Excellent and fascinating read,

This review is from: Malcolm Arnold - Rogue Genius: The Life and Music of Britain's Most Misunderstood Composer (Hardcover)
Knowing initially very little about Malcolm Arnold, I was delighted at how quickly I became intrigued and fascinated by this extraordinary man and his colourful life. The story is sensitively told and described, with clear respect for the man and his music, and with a very good grasp of significant detail and the bigger picture. The book stands as an undoubtedly authoritative biography but also as a marvellous portrayal of Britain's social history in much of the twentieth century. Most people will find much to treasure and enjoy in this highly-readable volume.
