In 1974, the Academy Award-winning film The Sting brought back the music of Scott Joplin, a black ragtime composer who died in 1917. This is the definitive biography of Scott Joplin. Drawing on a vast quantity of previously unconsidered primary material, it tells Joplin's vivid story and puts his life and music in its historical context with rare photos and music excerpts. Joplin was the first published composer of a truly uniquely American music and is one of a handful who can be said to have changed the course of popular composition.
