Leah's New Book

My better half's new book. Out this summer from Purdue University Press. I've read it and I really liked it. It's a look at the complex history of Wagner's opera Tannhauser and its surprising cultural ramifications. You can read more about it, here.

The cover is from one of Aubrey Beardsley's series of art works on Tannhauser which was my sole contribution to the volume, although I liked his amazing portrait of Venus slightly better.
