But no no no, I just got bored somewhere in the middle, all those Russian names and anecdotes about who-said-what-to-whom-and-where. I learned about my limitations as a reader. Sorry.

Interviews met Stravinsky, vooral over andere beroemdheden. Bevat een grappige beschrijving van de futuristen en enkele lieve brieven van Debussy en Ravel.
