With mesmeric symphonies, operas and film scores, Philip Glass has shaped the dominant idioms of today’s classical music. In this autobiography he identifies the family, friends, teachers and places that influenced him most, from his childhood in post-war Baltimore through studies in Chicago and New York to travels in India and Africa. Describing the thrill of artistic creation, he recalls studying with the formidable Nadia Boulanger and collaborating with such eminent figures as Ravi Shankar, Allen Ginsberg and Martin Scorsese. American-cut pages.
