“The Ghetto Swinger” included in Lives in Music list

The Ghetto Swinger - paperback book cover​The Ghetto Swinger is covered in Shepherd Express‘ list of recommended books about musicians. Arts & Entertainment Editor David Luhrssen writes:

“Unusually interesting amidst the plethora of self-serving musician autobiographies. Schumann has a better story to tell ​… survival under the hardest conditions, the value of well-placed friends and the vagaries of fortune as well as the impulse to create. The Ghetto Swinger is a r​are​ glimpse into the persistence of nightlife in Berlin (once a wide-open city) under the Nazis. At Theresienstadt, the ostensibly model concentration camp, Schumann entertained the SS guards with his music like his life depended on it—and it did!”
