"I would much rather have written the best song of a nation than its noblest epic."
-- Edgar Allan Poe

This collection of wise, witty and wonderful words by and about musicians of all kinds and styles contains hundreds of entries. The Music Lover's Quotation Book brings together memorable words and quips from composers, performers, writers, listeners, critics and fans. The book covers a wide range of musical genres and time periods from classical masters to jazz legends to country crooners to the bad boys of hip-hop and rap. "You can't cheat in mathematics or poetry or music," John Steinbeck writes in Sweet Thursday, "because they're based on truth."

There is certainly truth to be found in this collection of quotes along with humor, sadness, wisdom and insight. Whatever your musical tastes or interests, The Music Lover's Quotation Book will entertain, amuse and enlighten you.
