This book is, at its core, about music and the people who listen to it--your friends, your neighbors and you.
A fresh approach toward our cultural and sensical relationship to sound, this melodic examination of the world of music explores two big questions: How do we listen to music and why do we listen to it in the first place? From a range of factors that shape our experience of sound--biology, age, illness and more--Listen challenges the very dichotomy between "good" and "bad" music.
Lyrically woven and deeply evocative, Michel Faber's nonfiction debut reflects his lifelong passion for music of all kinds. Listen will change your relationship with the heard world.
