Composing a Life, by Mary Catherine Bateson

life as an improvisational art form

From the Publisher: 'This extraordinary book explores that act of creation that engages us all - the compostition of our lives. Through the comparative biographies of herself and four of her close friends, Mary Catherine Bateson provides a fascinating framework for her inquiry into the creative potential of complex lives, where energies are not narrowly focused toward a single ambition but rather are continually refocused and redefined.'
