About the Book

'You will not find a more devoted, thorough, loving and surprising book on the life of Leonard Bernstein - the most extraordinary man of extraordinary talents. Read it.' Lauren Bacall

''Humphrey Burton has written a very detailed and candid account of his friend . . . The mass of material is superbly handled . . . [Bernstein] was a music genius and he deserves this measured and meticulous biography.' Michael Kennedy, Sunday Telegraph

'Burton's style is spare and unobtrusive: the picture he paints is a vivid one. So much energy. So much intelligence . . . Burton also demonstrates that behind Leonard Bernstein's flamboyance (and the increasingly embarrassing public behaviour) there remained honesty of purpose and generosity of spirit. This biography is imbued with the same virtues. It is a book of exceptional quality.' The Times
