Description
A charismatic and brilliant conductor as well as a gifted composer of Broadway musicals (West Side Story), symphonies (Age of Anxiety), and film scores (On the Waterfront), Leonard Bernstein was also an enthusiastic correspondent. The letters collected hereófrom Bernstein himself as well as from such personalities as Aaron Copland, Stephen Sondheim, Jerome Robbins, Thornton Wilder, Boris Pasternak, Bette Davis, Adolph Green, and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, as well as Bernstein's familyóoffer revelations and insight into the many passions of his life.

"His collaborator Betty Comden once noted, in a letter to Bernstein, that he saved 'every scrap of correspondence.' You will be grateful."óNYTimes

"With their intellectual brilliance, humor and wonderful eye for detail, Leonard Bernstein's letters blow all biographies out of the water.... Full of fresh information and the authentic voice of a constant seeker."óEconomist (London)
