breaking artist. Laurie Anderson has impressed, surprised and fascinated me for over thirty-five years. After all that time, the depth and
focus of her mind and artistic/musical talents continues to lead the observer/listener into ever deepening journies into the human experience.
Laurie never seems to do anything which exists at only one level of meaning or observation. I look forward to sitting bolt upright in my
straight- backed chair, buttoning my top button, and getting ready for more difficult music and art. Thanks Roselee and thanks Laurie.
This book's major value to me is the validation of why L.A. -- and especially her live performances -- continues to intrigue and challenge me after all this time. Few artists in any medium have matured so completely yet unpredictably. This book catalogues her sustained growth while never falling into the biography trap of idoltry.
Unfortunately, since L.A. tours so infrequently it's difficult to study her creativity at close range. We're forced to make broad artistic assumptions about L.A. on very limited exposure.
Since what I want is more L.A., this book helps keep the flames buring inside my soul.
Ms. Goldberg not only unravelled the complexity of Laurie Anderson's works, but did so without jargonizing. She, instead, chose wisely to tell Laurie's story through pictures with extended captions. She was spare with her words--something few art historians can claim to do.
On that note, I better stop writing, myself....
I would have been a little bit more happy (and given 8 stars) if EVERY lyric, poem or shopping list Laurie wrote was here, but, well, I am asking too much.
Spend your money here, you won-t be dissapointed.
