D. T. Max, staff writer for The New Yorker, author, and biographer of David Foster Wallace (Every Love Story Is a Ghost Story: A Life of David Foster Wallace), mixes his own commentary with the raw and revealing transcripts from his conversations with Stephen Sondheim near the end of the composer’s life in his latest book Finale: Late Conversations with Stephen Sondheim. Interspersed throughout are Max’s insightful reflections on the delicacy required for interviews: “Profiles are fraught efforts,” Max writes, “profiles of famous people are famously fraught.” “Max paints a nuanced and sympathetic portrait of a notoriously private figure —enhanced with his own and honest perspective. Sondheim’s fans shouldn’t miss this.” – Publishers Weekly
