The sharpest ear in Hollywood

You've heard Artie Kane, even if you haven't heard of him. Kane spent decades in Hollywood, composing, conducting, and playing the music to a dizzying number of television shows (Wonder Woman!) and movies (Eyes of Laura Mars!) — and along the way, hobnobbing with the giants of the entertainment industry.

Amphora Editions, a small publisher with a penchant for the odd and beautiful, is sponsoring us this week to give you an inside look at Kane's new memoir, Music to My Years: a candid and wryly witty account of his life and adventures in entertainment. The sample chapter on our sponsorship page includes cameos by Jascha Heifetz, and Lionel Newman, among others. Stop by and spend a few minutes in 70s-era Hollywood with one of Hollywood's great working musicians.

Sponsors like Amphora Editions make the Seattle Review of Books possible. Did you know you could sponsor us, as well? If you have a book, event, or opportunity you’d like to get in front of our readers, reserve your dates now.
