Reviews

"Graceful. . . . A lovely, unique book. . . . A personal journey [that] becomes universal, elevating all in the process." --Los Angeles Times"A thoughtful and fluid meditation on the subject. . . . [Kurtz] might just compel you to call your old grade-school piano teacher to see if she's taking on any new students."--The New York Times Book Review "A sensuous, evocative memoir about love lost and regained. . . . Kurtz has gone back to work on his guitar playing, and his devotion seems like a rebirth of self." --San Francisco Chronicle Book Review"Absorbing . . . [Written] with uncanny sensitivity about his brief career as a professional performer."--The Wall Street Journal
