It is a remarkable demystification of what it means to be a composer. His book is a testimony that is equally emotional and intellectual, refreshing and comprehensible to anyone who has ever built or created something with care and attention, whether it be a piece of music, a table, a business, or a family.

Hallelujah Junction: Composing an American Life

A fascinating picture of John Adams the man unfolds with the same directness, precision, and passion as his music. What impresses me most is the sense of absolute honesty in the narrative: Hallelujah Junction stands with books by Hector Berlioz and Louis Armstrong among the most readably incisive autobiographies of major musical figures.

Hallelujah Junction is one of the best and most important composer autobiographies next to those of Berlioz and Wagner. In the classical-music world, Adams is seen as a sort of late-career Picasso: Hallelujah Junction doesn't overturn these perceptions, but it adds a surprising hue of restlessness and uncertainty to the portrait.

John Adams's memoir is exuberant, opinionated, and vastly informative. The musical material itself, the harmonies, rhythms, the timbres and tempi, are seeds you have planted.

Composing, bringing forth the final formal arrangement of these elements, is often a business of watching them grow, knowing when to nourish and water them and when to prune and weed. A book unlike anything ever written by a composer, part memoir and part description of the creative process, Hallelujah Junction is an absorbing journey through the musical landscape of John Adams, one of today's most admired and frequently performed composers.
