Product description

Review

"Edward W. Said was himself an example of 'the virtuoso as intellectual, ' as he has referred to Glenn Gould. Strauss, Beethoven, Schoenberg, Mann, Genet, Adorno, Lampedusa, Visconti, and Gramsci are all in this brilliant book--a profound statement of Said's humanity, which I can only find encouraging as I face the inevitable predicament of the late stage of my own life."
--KENZABURO OE
