Reviews

"The stories in Paul Headrick's The Doctrine of Affections deal with how and why music matters to us and why it can express feeling so movingly. Whether the music in question is classical, jazz, soul, or rock, Headrick's stories always sound the right note: pathos, humour, irony, wistfulness, absurdity, joy. These stories express music from the inside out, with feeling, like the music Headrick so clearly admires and knows so well."--Bruce Baugh "With only two books to his name, Paul Headrick has already established himself as a subtle and charming writer with a great subject, which is music in all its manifestations--Sinatra and Crosby, opera, highlife, baroque, a single mother singing her child to sleep with jazz standards, a traveller comforting his mule on a long, all-night trek. Through his characters, Headrick shows us just how much music may move us, even to the point of altering our lives. Musicians and music lovers, I recommend this book to you. To the tone-deaf and the tin-eared (pity us!), I prescribe it."--Caroline Adderson "The stories in Paul Headrick's The Doctrine of Affections deal with how and why music matters to us and why it can express feeling so movingly.
