Following the huge success of his Love Lives of the Great Composers (1995), Basil Howitt has written a second book of revelations even more lurid than the first. How about Debussy, who treated two of his women so badly that they took out their revolvers and fired on themselves? Or that "naughty old man" Elgar, who began a serious romance at age 74 with a separated Jewish violinist 40 years his junior? Or Percy Grainger, the peroxide blonde, whose pretty mother was so deranged by rumors of incest that she leapt 14 storeys to her death?
