This autobiography of a British composer is as idiosyncratic as the man himself, revealing his insatiable curiosity about people and places, ideas and sensations, and music of every kind. Sir Michael writes vigorously and bravely and is candid about his sexual and emotional life.

Industry Reviews

"What makes THOSE TWENTIETH CENTURY BLUES so fascinating, and often very moving, is not just its illumination of a richly patterned life, but the sheer candour of the reminiscences. . . It is altogether an admirable book. . . touchingly honest and endearing." * Financial Times * "Richly entertaining. . . The heady flavour of the man himself is here." * Sunday Telegraph * "It is his best book. . . and anyone with the remotest interest in contemporary music should read it." * London Magazine * "Extremely lively and candid. . . he is a master story-teller. . . highly enjoyable." * Musical Times *
