Alex Ross's Book

Posted at 5:08 PM on October 11, 2007 by Rex Levang

The reviews are starting to appear for Alex Ross's new book (he's the classical music critic for the New Yorker, and author of a widely-read classical blog).

For example, this one from the New York Observer, headlined "The Best Listener in America." Sounds like the reviewer is a fan.

(And if you're a fan yourself, mark your calendar for Ross's November appearance at the Fitzgerald Theatre.)
