Where Dead Voices Gather by Nick Tosches

See 1 Critic Review

The discipline of Tosches' great biographies of Jerry Lee Lewis (Hellfire), Dean Martin (Dino), and Sonny Liston (The Devil And Sonny Liston) is almost entirely absent. As a ramble through the overgrown depths of a shared culture, however, it's a pleasure, and Tosches is one of the few writers capable of navigating the terrain.

Synopsis

A forgotten singer from the early days of jazz is at the center of this riveting book--a narrative that is part mystery, part biography, part meditation on the meaning and power of music.
