Take two: Wagnerism: Art and Politics in the Shadow of Music, Alex Ross

For a full review, see my Patreon

I picked this book up at Abbeys Bookshop in the Sydney CBD one day when I had to go into town for other reasons. In fact I had to buy a Thermos flask for a friend and I also – while inside Myer – bought another umbrella. The Ross book had been foreshadowed the last time I was in the bookstore when two of the staff mentioned a good Wagner biography that was coming. In fact I don’t know if this was the one they were talking about but in the “music” section they had half-a-dozen copies of this – one in soft cover and several in hardback. I bought one of the hardback ones because they’re easier to hold while reading.
