A Heart at Fire's Center : The Life and Music of Bernard Herrmann
by Smith, Steven C

Overview -
"An exceptional work. I stand in awe of anyone who can piece together the puzzle of a man's life so fully, especially a man as odd and contradictory as Herrmann. A brilliant job."--Leonard Maltin
"Bernard Herrmann was a master of psychology. His incredibly innovative music 'inhabited' the film it was in, creating moods that stayed with the audience long after the film was over. Steven Smith captures the very heart of what Herrmann represented. I highly recommend this book to anyone who truly wants a glimpse into the world of this musical giant who changed the very nature of film composing."--Esa-Pekka Salonen, music director, Los Angeles Philharmonic
"Fascinating. The scholarship is impeccable, the judgments sound, and the whole thing as compulsively readable as eating popcorn."--Nicholas Meyer, director and writer
