Summer Reading

Real life has again intruded on semi-regular blogging, but look for some fresh comments later this week (including my review of a must-have Handel release). Meanwhile, I’ve picked a recent-but-not-new books for vacation reading:

  • Barry Miles, Zappa
  • Kevin Bazzana, Lost Genius: The Curious and Tragic Story of an Extraordinary Musical Prodigy [namely, Ervin Nyiregyházi]
  • Ray Raphael, Founding Myths: Stories that Hide Our Patriotic Past
  • Richard Dawkins, The Selfish Gene [that’s a subsection of a chromosome, not me!]
