Distinguished American minimalist composer.


John Adams isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but he does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from his feed.
The Mills students clustered around him reverentially, and all spoke in the same manner, carefully aping his hushed, ironically bemused tone. It was impossible not be drawn in, as Bob was both gentle and agreeable, and he maintained an enviable lightness of touch in all his social dealings, making you want more than anything to be part of his circle.
