About the Author

Composer, author, and philosopher, JOHN CAGE was born in Los Angeles in 1912 and by the age of 37 had been recognized by the American Academy of Arts and Letters for having extended the boundaries of music. Cage composed hundreds of works in his career, many depending on chance procedures for their structure and performance. His books include Silence(1961), A Year from Monday(1967), M(1973), Empty woods(1979), X(1983), MUSICAGE(1996), and I-VI(1997). John Cage died in 1992 at the age of 79.

Reviews

"This book is so rich in ideas relevant to all sorts of artistic, philosophical, and social endeavors, that I doubt if any open-minded and intelligent person would not be challenged [by] this compendium of provocative aphorisms, intellectual absurdities, and formulations so original they will doubtlessly make sense to some, nonsense to others"—Richard Kostelanetz, Denver Quarterly

"Cage's writings does not tell us what to think as much as it makes us think I a particular way cage demonstrates in an unpretentious, subtle ad forceful way the profound spiritual basis of avante-garde art."—American Scholar

"A Year from Monday is a mosaic whose part and whose whole are the same thingand you had better not miss both the forest and the trees; and you better not worry about mixed metaphor along the way."—Martin Last, WBAI – FM, New York City

"Our first and best all-American dadaist and his prose style is the finest since Gertrude Stein."—Kirkus Reviews
