“When I first heard Hersch interviewed on NPR years ago, I said, ‘I’ve got to know more about this guy. His music is going to tell me something that, as a doctor, I’d otherwise never know.” said Dr. Rita Charon, the executive director of the Program in Narrative Medicine. What it taught her, and the audience, was about the richness—including the fear, humor, and creativity—of the experience.

ARTINFO‘s  review “It is a remarkable and touching work, by turns alarming and funny, tense and tender, showcasing equally Hersch’s deep love of, say, Thelonious Monk’s music, and his deeply loving relationship with his partner.”
