Widely known as a preeminent jazz writer, Gary Giddins is also famous for his reflections on popular culture, books, and movies. "Faces in the Crowd" compiles the best of his essays into a potent reader, collecting his most provocative writing, and ranging from reflection to interview to close critical analysis. Here Giddins explores the achievements of thirty-seven artists: show people, divas, musicians, and writers, from Irving Berlin to Spike Lee, Billie Holiday to Miles Davis, Katherine Anne Porter to Phillip Roth. In this collection, he shows why he has become one of the most influential critics of his generation.
