"the biography of the internationally acclaimed Australian concert pianist, Isador Goodman, who died in 1982. It is frankly and warmly written by his wife, Virginia, who makes no compromise about what she sees are the injustices of Goodman's life; the book is not without controversy.
Isador, Goodman was born in South Africa in 1909, of Jewish parents, and he and his mother went to England when he was twelve. It was there that Goodman developed his talent and made his name as a concert pianist."
