Reviews

"Max paints a nuanced and sympathetic portrait of a notoriously private figure, enhanced with his own astute and earnest perspective . . . . Sondheim's fans shouldn't miss this." -- Publishers Weekly

"[An] erudite and affably self-conscious memoir of the creative process. . . . For every brilliant chunk of dialogue, there are multiple moments when Max invites readers into his thought process while interviewing, as well as first-person accounts of the frenzied desire he felt coaxing Sondheim into revealing what makes him tick." -- Vulture
