Description
From his childhood in Baltimore to his studies with Nadia Boulanger in Paris, and from his 1976 breakthrough opera Einstein on the Beach to his late-career soundtrack work, Philip Glass reflects back on an extraordinary career in music in this 2015 memoir. Described as a "deft, quietly witty writer" (The Guardian), Glass also evokes his youth in the bohemian Paris and Beat Generation New York City of the 1950s. A world-renowned composer of instrumental music, operas, and film scores, Glass has almost singlehandedly crafted the dominant sound of late 20th-century classical music. Nearly 50 years after helping to introduce minimalist compositions to a wider audience, Glass remains a major force in contemporary music.

"At times Words Without Music reads the way Mr. Glass's compositions sound at their best: propulsive, with a surreptitious emotional undertow. Like his music, his prose is made up of simple components—plain, honest sentences that work their magic cumulatively."—NYTimes
