The New York Times Book Review…Blitzstein's rehabilitation is proceeding slowly. Although the three-volume Marc Blitzstein Songbook was published more than a decade ago, most of his compositions languish in manuscript in libraries. Pollack brings these works out of the archives and into the light, examining them far more thoroughly than ever before, and in the context of Blitzstein's life and times…Marc Blitzstein is the story of an artistic genius who refused to sell out, and Pollack has made a powerful case for his rediscovery. With its extensive and insightful descriptions of the music, this biography ought to win for Blitzstein the wider recognition and appreciation he so clearly deserves after so many years of neglect.
