MEDIA REVIEWS
A major achievement is the recognition the book gives to writers heretofore ignored, e.g. Otto Harbach, Peter Stone, George Furth, Michael Stewart, and to the lengthy careers of Joseph, Herbert, and Dorothy Fields....Large academic research collections and performing arts collections... * CHOICE *
A fascinating and knowledgeable account of the way American musicals were and are developed - collaboratively to be sure, but seen from the viewpoint of librettists. -- Neil Novelli * Syracuse Post-Standard/Stars *
