Yes, Desert Dancer, I was quoting. I don't think the NYT would publish a letter from me. I guess they just don't like folk music, for whatever reason, and furthermore I don't think Ms. Maslin really did more than cursorily glance at the book. I have, and it's really great and full of surprises. I like Mr. Szwed's other books, too. He's just about the best.
