Suffering constantly with his health, he goes through the anguish of the near-breakdown and infidelities of his lover . enjoys endless lunches, teas and dinners in which the dessert is always the thing, is shrewd, waspish and sometimes kind about a host of contemporaries, and never for a moment ceases to work at his music, think about it and travel wherever.

Mr. Rorem's prose is difficult to read. It is a chaotic collection ranging from the useless to the quite informative, from the truly insightful to the really horribly boring. Indeed such a collection falls under the definition of a "private" diary; however, more literary skill is needed when a book is offered to the broad public. Not that it is a complete waste of time - a student of NYC cultural life can find the book fascinating. In fact, Mr. Rorem's writing is so self-centered that nothing in this book really has any true existence except for NYC, the Nantucket home, and possibly Paris from decades ago. That a person with such intellect and talent can be so limited in his perception of the world is beyond my understanding.
I think Mr. Rorem's music is far better than his limping prose.

Ned's diaries contain a running joke about his hatred of Elliott Carter's music. Until it gets to the point where Ned finally says: "I can't prove it, but I don't think that even Elliott Carter likes Elliott Carter's music." I almost croaked when I read that. It's right up there with the time when Evelyn Waugh said to Igor Stravinsky: "All music is painful to me."
