Charles Long thrilled opera audiences for more than two decades, performing on some of America's and the world's most famous stages and singing alongside some of the medium's greatest stars. Now retired, Long vividly recounts many of those experiences in this insightful, frank, and humorous memoir. Sparing no one, especially himself, from his acerbic wit and keen observations, he sheds a bright light into a world many of us respect and admire but few of us have ever encountered in such intimate detail. In the process he illustrates why the word opera , which means work in Italian, truly is a labor of love for so many who have given their all to their art.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Long' book surprised me by its earthiness and honesty . . . . He spares no one in his narrative, least of all himself. . . . [His] tone is downright irreverent, but it' beautifully written and easy to read; even the musical terminology is transparent." Tom Glenn, washingtonindependentreviewofbooks.com
"A good title is no guarantee of a good book, but Charles Long' Adventures in the Scream Trade is an uncommonly candid and opinionated account of his life as a starring operatic baritone." Mark Kanny, triblive.com
"Music fans of all genres will identify with his trials, tribulations, and successes in the scream trade. Any reader who has ever screamed due to the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune will take heart in knowing that in Charles Long they'e found a fellow traveler." Chip Etier, examiner.com
