Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

SEMPE'S LINE BECOMES MUSIC. -THE NEW YORK TIMES

"Sempe is a comedic genius, who gives all of us musicians the invaluable gift of redeeming our solemnity with the grace of humor." -Leonard Bernstein

"Sempe's musicians resound with his extraordinary genius. His fascination with the comedy of music making is a wonderful play on the nobility of music and the frailty of musicians. His vision is compassionate, ironic, lyrical, and very funny." -Edward Koren

"There is something so very touching about his work, based on the contrast between his message and the meticulousness of his detail." -Saul Steinberg

Here is the musician's world captured in 65 poignant, funny, and utterly memorable drawings, including 16 in full color, by France's most celebrated cartoonist. Sempe is well-known in this country for his frequent contributions to The New Yorker.

About the Author

Jean-Jacques Sempe is the author of Displays of Affection. His drawings have appeared in numerous books in France--with the sales of over 1 million copies. His work appears regularly on the cover of The New Yorker. Sempe is a jazz fanatic.
