In these lively letters, inspired by the poet Nina Cassian, Maurice Edwards follow a lifelong talented path through his involvement in many aspects of theater and music, from his experimental stagings in off Broadway theater to his innovative programming as artistic director of the Brooklyn Philharmonic. En route, he paints hilarious portraits of many artistic characters, from domineering Gertrude Stein in her post-World War II apartment in Paris to Lilla Van Saher, friend of Tennessee Williams, in her New York Murray Hill flat.
