by | Read by Lloyd James

Biography & Memoir • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Philip Glass, the renowned composer of contemporary classical music as well as film scores, shares a mostly chronological audio memoir. Narrator Lloyd James provides a workmanlike performance--unemotional, clear, and even paced. Both the book and James's narration are graceful but lacking in drama. The narrative offers vignettes of the self-confident Glass as a child, followed by stories of his first part-time jobs, both emphasizing his early cultural mentors. But overall, there's little depth given to the circumstances and people Glass has encountered in his life experience. James's tenor voice is calm and engaging, and he clearly enunciates his words. Nonetheless, this work may be best enjoyed by those especially interested in Glass and his music. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2015]
