520    "Finding the Raga is more than a book that tries to make 
       sense of the raga, of Indian classical music, and of how 
       Indian music challenges Western notions of what music 
       might be. It is a work of self-inquiry, as might be 
       expected from Amit Chaudhuri, a musician who is also a 
       novelist; a novelist who is also a critic and essayist; a 
       trained and recorded performer in the Indian classical 
       vocal tradition who was also, once, a guitarist and 
       songwriter in the American folk music style and is now a 
       composer and recorded performer in experimental music. 
       Each one of these undertakings and selves signifies turns 
       at different points in life, and each turn and change of 
       direction brings a fresh perspective on music, writing, 
       and what it means to take on and do these things. No 
       category-Indian, Western-is a given in this book. Partly a
       record of one of the most important turns in the author's 
       life, toward North Indian music, and of its long aftermath,
       Finding the Raga is also part autobiography set in 1970s 
       Bombay, part essay, and part detailed analysis of how we 
       might grasp the conceptual underpinnings as well as the 
       experience of music. It explores the different ways in 
       which music relates to the world-whether it's through 
       representation or evocation, as in Western music, or 
       through the raga being sung at different times of day and 
       in different seasons, as in Indian music-and also tries to
       understand what the act of listening involves for 
       individuals and cultures"--|cProvided by publisher.
