The New Yorker’s maestro of the word is here presenting a brilliant Prelude (The Wagner Vortex) to his forthcoming book on Wagnerian ways and cultural influx.

It turns out he has already received wild admiration by those, who have tried and failed – to get access to the so far famously private Wagner- Family – Archives at Bayreuth where he is going to conduct further research, not necessarily  focused on the political agenda! Looking forward to Ross’ revelations to come!
