‘Mahler would have liked Beyoncé’s music’

A reporter rang from The Sun, asking for details of the family connection between Mahler and Beyoncé Knowles, as mentioned in my book, Why Mahler?

As a condition of the interview, he promised to mention the book in Britain’s biggest mass-mammary newspaper (so known for its topless page 3).

I opened the paper this morning and found a short sentence misquoting me, right beneath the boobs.

In a longer story online, the reporter mistitled the book, ‘Fate, death and Alma’ and made me out to have said: ‘Mahler would have liked Beyoncé’s music’. Oh, really?


You couldn’t make it up…. so that’s what The Sun does.

I think I would rather have been phone-hacked.
