That's a great book.
Solzhenitsyn mentions him often in The Gulag Archipelago.

Tudor, by Leanda DeLisle. If you've already read Dan Jones' The Wars of the Roses, Tudor will reintroduce you at the beginning to all the characters you've come to know and love (tongue planted firmly in cheek), and then launch into another unbelievable history of corruption, murder, debauchery, and an entire gamut of the depths into which humans can sink. :shock:

almost done with Audacious Euphony by Richard Cohn. Very technical and a bit challenging but interesting reading.

a biography of Joseph Lamb, one of the "big three" of the classic ragtime composers.

The 1943 book by Alan Jacobs
