Nearly everything about jazz savant Thelonious Monk (1917-1982) was unusual, but there was nothing fabricated about the piercing genius or poignancy of this brilliant pianist/composer. Robin Kelley's Thelonious Monk rescues his image from caricature or neglect with a 600-page bounty of information, enhanced by the full cooperation of Monk's family and friends. One of the most unforgettable jazz biographies in years; now in paperback. Editor's recommendation.
