About this book
Bossa nova is one of the most popular musical genres in the world. Songs such as "The Girl from Ipanema" (the fifth-most-played song in the world), "The Waters of March", and "Desafinado" are known from one end of the earth to the other. This book, the one and only, definitive account of the history of bossa nova, relives the culture of Rio during its heyday. Based on extensive interviews with Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto, and all the major musicians and their friends, Bossa Nova is full of passion and betrayal, love and hate, comedy and tragedy.
