KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a charming book of reminiscences, and should appeal as such to more than the musical audience. The book is in no way a technical book; it is autobiographical, and Professor Mason is known as a lecturer, composer, writer. Delightful glimpses of the great and the near great among musicians, sculptors, poets, writers, playwrights, including such people as Paderewski, Hofmann, Gabrilowitsch, Edward Arlington Robinson, Santayana and others. The start of the book is a bit prosy -- but it gathers momentum and is entertaining reading, warmly human and personal.
