"Much as Tony Bennett's music is appreciated, so will
be this insightful book about the man behind the music."
-- Gay Talese
"David Evanier's 'All the Things You Are'
is a work of profound empathy and musical understanding. Tony
Bennett lives in these pages as a matchlessly joyous singer
whose brilliance refracts from a deep and subtle soul."
-- James Kaplan, author of
"Frank: The Voice"
"The great thing about David Evanier's
biography--beyond its reliable research, nuanced evaluations,
and stylistic eloquence--is that by looking closer at a great
artist than the artist might have wished, it uncovers a man
even more worthy of our admiration than we knew; a valiant
defender of Civil Rights as well as the classic American songbook
and the singer's right to enhance it by his own light."
-- Gary Giddins, author of
"Bing Crosby: A Pocketful of Dreams
"A heartfelt tribute. Evanier's passion
for Bennett shines through."
-- PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY
