Praise for The German Cabaret Legacy in American Popular Music

cabaret

“…a highly readable and immensely enjoyable book.  Farina does an excellent job of connecting the dots between the spirited and gutsy artistic expression of early to mid-twentieth century Germany and the consequent triumph of American popular music.  Any lover of Broadway musicals, the American Songbook, or Rock-and-Roll will savor and be enlightened by this well-researched work…a timely reminder of the power that the artist can have in politically challenging times.”  ~ Stewart Figa, 2015 Grammy-nominated cabaret artist (New Budapest Orpheum Society)
