Co-author Sarah Jensen's 30-year friendship with Keenan gives her unique insight into his history and career trajectory. The book traces Keenan's journey from his Midwest childhood to his years in the Army to his time in art school, from his stint at a Boston pet shop to his place in the international spotlight and his influence on contemporary music and regional winemaking. A comprehensive portrayal of a versatile and dedicated artist, A Perfect Union of Contrary Things pays homage to the people and places that shaped the man and his art. Until now, Maynard's fans have had access to only an abridged version of his story. A Perfect Union of Contrary Things presents the outtakes, the scenes of disappointment and triumph, and the events that led him to take one step after the next, to change direction, to explore sometimes surprising opportunities. Included are sidebars in his own words, often humorous anecdotes that illuminate the narrative, as well as commentary by his family members, friends, instructors, and industry colleagues. The book also features a foreword by Alex Grey, an American visionary artist and longtime friend of Keenan. Accompanying the text are photos of Keenan from childhood to the present. Maynard's story is a metaphor for the reader's own evolution and an encouragement to follow one's dreams, hold fast to individual integrity, and work ceaselessly to fulfill our creative potential.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Spirito and Clementina’s marriage was strong, and they had two children. But in America, they believed, lay their fortune. They arrived in Leetonia, Pennsylvania, in 1902, and Spirito took what work he could at the remaining mills and the logging sites. #2 Mike took a job at Indian Lake High School, and the family moved into a house with flower beds and vegetable plots. Judith did her best to mask the smell of the pigsty out back. #3 Jim’s childhood was spent moving from house to house with his mother, who worked for the government. He had a set of toy guns and a Spirograph, and he spent his time playing with them or reading books. His friends were the boys in his neighborhood, who became his friends because they had to spend time together. #4 Jim’s house was a base camp for exploration and invention. The small terrace surrounding the recessed flower bed in the side yard made a fine cockpit for a boy perched on the top step, the flagpole rising from the middle of the garden a perfect propeller post.

Music has long been neglected by aestheticians, who tend to privilege discussions of visual arts and literature. In this volume, Herbert M. Schueller brings the aesthetics of music into the fold, tracing the development of the idea from classical antiquity through the medieval period. He writes in a manner accessible to scholars whose specialties lie outside of technical music theory, keeping in mind especially the aesthetician but also general medieval scholars, and even the general reader.
