520    Percy Grainger was one of the most colourful of this 
       century's cultural figures. As a pianist and largely self-
       taught composer he was feted in the 1910s and the 1920s, 
       and is probably still best known for the work he 'dished 
       up' in many different guises, Country Gardens. But 
       Grainger aspired to the role of 'the all-round man' and 
       nourished ideas, some brilliant, others ludicrous, across 
       the full range of human endeavour: race, nationality, sex,
       language, life-style, food, clothes, technology, ecology. 
520 8  The All-Round Man depicts that scrabbling diversity 
       through seventy-six challenging letters from Grainger's 
       'American' years, 1914-61. These letters are fascinating 
       to read: they are cultivated 'rambles' (as Grainger 
       actually called several of his compositions), not 
       dissimilar to today's telephone conversations. Often 
       written in Grainger's crunchy 'Blue-eyed English', they 
       explore uninhibitedly every corner of his public and 
       private life. They reflect the magnificent attempts of a 
       great but flawed mind to encompass the world.
