Description

First published in 1980, The Bass Saxophone was chosen as Book of the Year by The Guardian. This internationally acclaimed classic of jazz literature is now available in a handsome new edition with a new contribution by the author. As an introduction to these two novellas, Skvorecky writes a remarkable personal memoir of his jazz-obsessed youth under two dictatorships. (2001)
