If you thought How to Stay Awake During Anybody's Second Movement was the least bit funny, you'll die laughing at David Walden's second volume, tackling the last musical taboo -- the subject that virtually no one has dared expose to teh public eye -- namely, Modern Serious Music of the 20th Century. Walden faces the truth honestly with such chapter headings as Why Do Most People Hate Modern Music? and The Clothespegs of Modern Music -- Where to Hang it. This book is redolent with hitherto-unrevealed revelations of the 20th century. It's like the National Enquirier looking at the music of the 20th Century in a special edition, with headlines like: Wagner: Sperm Donor of Modern Music. ©1999, 154 pages.
