About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: Bad Boy of Music.

Publisher: Doubleday, New York

Publication Date: 1945

Edition: First Printing of the First US Edition.


A Very Good copy with slight soiling to head of spine and top edge of boards in a Good only dust jacket that is missing several large chips from front panel and spine. Still a difficult book to locate with any kind of jacket. Antheil was a classically trained pianist who traveled to Europe after the first war, married a Hungarian woman, lived above Sylvia Beach's book store and became a colorful member of the Left Bank expatriate community. His best known work is "Ballet Mecanique" (scored for machines and airplane propeller), but he also scored the movie "The Scoundrel" and later wrote an advice column for the lovelorn.
