Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A dozen essays that span the whole range of music demonstrate, for example that the assassination of women in rap music is not much different from the fate of mothers in grand opera. Journalists, fans, academics, and workers in the music industry offer such titles as dead white men in wigs: women and classical music; tell the truth: meeting Margie Hendrix; and I was a teenage country fan.
