Pianist/composer Thelonious Monk was an elusive and eccentric personality whose music and style were initially misunderstood. From his growing up in Manhattan, through his struggles to be heard,and to his eventual withdrawal from the music, his genius emerges. Gourse has based her biography on interviews with family, friends, and associates in addition to extensive research, and she includes several rare photographs. The book includes a useful index and a list of sessions, compositions, and videos.

"I'd like to say I am extremely pleased with the service your company has provided me. I'll be receiving my new Sonor Force tomorrow and am very excited. This shopping experience has been pleasant and satisfying. The price was killer and the kit will be awesome. Also, sending me the drum heads I wanted free of charge was an unexpected bonus that I will never forget."

"I couldn't believe it! I ordered a drumset for my nephew for his birthday through your website just 2 days before his birthday. Ordering so late I just knew it wouldn't arrive until a few days after his birthday. I was thrilled when he called during his "big party day" to say it arrived and Thanks. He's still young enough that getting your birthday presents on the day of is still a big deal. Thank you so much!"
