A NoveleBook - 2007
Ravel is a beguiling and original evocation of the last ten years in the life of the musical genius Ravel, written by novelist Jean Echenoz.The book opens in 1928 as Maurice Ravel--dandy, eccentric, curmudgeon--crosses the Atlantic abroad the luxury liner the SS France to begin his triumphant grand tour of the United States. A "master magician of the French novel" (The Washington Post), Echenoz captures the folly of the era as well as its genius, including Ravel's personal life--sartorially and socially splendid--as well as his most successful compositions from 19.
