FRIENDS AND FIDDLERS by Catherine Drinker Bowen

A delightfully personal revelation of the place music plays in the lives of an intimate group of music lovers. A capturing of the enchantment of music, of what it does to those who make it thoroughly their own. A gay, human, casual, catch-as-catch-can sort of book, which should delight a special audience. That is an audience not easy to reach. Check over those of your customers who are musicians, amateurs and professionals, call the book to their attention. Word of mouth advertising is the ultimate answer, and this should start it. The book has a contagious quality that makes one want to gather round and make the most of what talent or gift one can unearth. Not a book for quick sale, but a book for the unusual reader -- and the long haul. An Atlantic Book.
