Reviews

"Heroic... fascinating." --New York Times "Inspirational... exuberant." --Los Angeles Times "Revelatory... Where the Heart Beats may not just be the best book written yet about John Cage; it's probably also one of the most substantive-yet-readable entryways into the nexus of 20th-century American art and the immortal qualities of Eastern thought... one of the most profound, not to mention unexpected, gifts imaginable."--Slate "Absorbing... no future commentator on Cage's work or influence will be able to ignore Larson's contribution...a milestone in contemporary cultural criticism." --San Francisco Chronicle "Remarkable... without a doubt the richest, most stimulating, most absorbing book I've read in the past year, if not decade -- remarkably researched, exquisitely written, weaving together a great many threads of cultural history into a holistic understanding of both Cage as an artist and Zen as a lens on existence... Not unlike Cage's music, Where the Heart Beats: John Cage, Zen Buddhism, and the Inner Life of Artists is impossible to distill, to synthesize, to relay. Rather, its goodness is best experienced in full, with complete surrender. "--Brain Pickings "Strange and wonderful... a gloriously rich reading experience, studded with layers upon layers of deeply inspiring and endlessly fascinating paths. One of the best books of the year in any category." --NPR.org (A Favorie Music Book of the Year)
