Product description

Review

'pulsing with the life of the jazz solos that tumble from Rick's trumpet, as well as the vibrancy and talent of his black musician friends.  A pitch-perfect evocation of the music that defined an age.'

(Irish Times)

'these marvellous books are witty and assured.  Her tone is dark and jaunty, the writing off-handedly smart.  

(London Review of Books)

About the Author

DOROTHY DODDS BAKER (1907-1968) was born in Missoula, Montana, and raised in California. After having a few short stories published, Baker turned to writing full-time, and in 1938 she published Young Man with a Horn, which earned critical praise and eventually became a movie. She received a Guggenheim fellowship in 1942 and, the next year, published  Trio, a novel whose frank portrayal of a lesbian relationship proved too scandalous for the times. Her final novel, Cassandra at the Wedding, is also available from NYFRB Classics. GARY GIDDINS was a music critic for The Village Voice, where his column Weather Bird ran for thirty years. He has contributed articles about music, mostly jazz, to The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Atlantic, The Nation and Vanity Fair, among others.
