Interesting, but slow in parts,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: King of Ragtime: Scott Joplin and His Era (Taschenbuch)
After reading Doctorow's Ragtime and visiting Scott's St. Louis home I was eager to learn more about Scott Joplin and this book satisfied that need.
It is a detective story putting the clues together how his life was lived. This makes it an interesting read.
The only warning I would have is that it is blocky and interrupted with music scores and other interludes which don't lend itself to a reading rhythm.
