[A] lively, readable memoir ... Aids, Woodstock, Vietnam, the film world, the art world, the jazz era of John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Charlie Parker: all spring to life in these pages. Philip Glass is a deft, quietly witty writer. Finding his own music - how to make it, where it comes from - is his first priority. (Fiona Maddocks The Observer)
