A book unlike anything ever written by a composer--part memoir, part description and explication of the creative process--"Hallelujah Junction" is an absorbing journey across the musical landscape of America and through the life and times of John Adams, one of today's most admired and performed composers.
JOHN ADAMS is the composer of some of the most successful operas in recent memory--Nixon in China, The Death of Klinghoffer, and Doctor Atomic.
