160 pages, paperback
ISBN-10: 0908916712
ISBN-13: 978-0980916713

Illustrated by Dave Donald, with a preface by Anthony Burgess

The witty and informative Bach, Beethoven and the Boys chronicles the lives of the great (and not-so-great) composers as you’ve never read them before – exploring their sex lives, exposing their foibles and expanding our understanding of these all-too-human creatures.

Filled with information, interesting facts and trivia and complete with an index, this hilarious history covers music from Gregorian chant to the mess we’re in now. From Bach’s laundry lists to Beethoven’s bowel problems, from Gesualdo’s kinky fetishes to Cage’s mushroom madness, Barber tells tales out of school that ought to be put back there. (Think how much more fun it would be if they taught this stuff.)

Dave Donald has provided witty and clever cartoon illustrations to accompany the text.
