Enya: A Treatise on Unguilty Pleasures (Paperback)
Literary Nonfiction. Music. Does music have to be smart or does it just have to go to the heart? Chilly Gonzales is one of the most exciting, original, hard-to-pin-down musicians of our time. Filling halls worldwide, at the piano in slippers and a bathrobe--in any one night he can dissect the musicology of an Oasis hit, give a sublime solo recital, and display his lyrical dexterity as a rapper. In crisp, erudite prose Gonzales delves beyond Enya's innumerable gold discs and millions of fans to excavate his own enthusiasm for her singular music, as well as the mysterious musician herself, and along the way uncovers new truths about the nature of music, fame, success, and the artistic endeavor.
