Earlier this week, selections from the letters of Leonard Bernstein were released in book form for the first time. As WNYC’s Sara Fishko tells us in this edition of Fishko files, the letters are pure Lenny.
The Leonard Bernstein Letters was published by Yale Press. For more information, and to purchase the book, visit their website.
