"Caetano is likely to be remembered as one of the '60's great composers, period."-New York Times Book Review

Bookforum - Damon Krukowski

What is this voice? Dylan, were he willing to write in complete sentences? John Lennon, drug- and irony-free? Mick Jagger turned introspective? Have we ever hear our pop music icons speak like this? Caetano's autobiography is revealing in a way that no kiss-and-tell book can ever be, because its excesses are of pride rather than ego.... The book is well-written, too; Caetano has a novelistic flair, especially for characterization... And he has musician's knack for anecdote.
