- Deep in a Dream: The Long Night of Chet Baker - 12/16/16
by James Gavin III
Well, that was a harrowing read. I came to this book with some casual curiosity, and ended up learning waaaaay more than I'd bargained for. As is obvious to me at this point, it was never going to be possible to like or admire Chet Baker the person, but I think I have a better understanding of his music now. And I love the idea that the Italians fell in love with him (while the Americans shunned him) because of some of the Felliniesque qualities they saw in his nature and his art. It's all a fascinating, horrifying story.
