“In few creative figures can ideas, personal life and output have been more inextricably merged than in Percy Grainger. Internationally celebrated as a brilliant, if idiosyncratic concert pianst, Grainger's off-beat compositions and folk-song arrangements quickly won the recognition of Delius, Busoni and later of Britten. The book also explores Grainger's bizarre sexual predilections, his eccentric athleticism and his Anglo-Saxon triumphalism.”
