This is an auction for ROCK ME AMADEUS by Seb Hunter.

"It should have been a straightforward plan. When Seb Hunter turned his back on his cherished record collection in search of more nourishing sounds, rock'n'roll cold turkey was going to be the least of his problems. His simple aim was to try and feel passionate about classical music, and that meant starting at the very beginning: with a hallucinating German nun. What followed was a hilarious Euro-odyssey that included twenty different varieties of Austrian sausage, minstrels, eunuchs, several tellings-off and a night on the sauce with an off-duty conductor. Success in his quest, Seb thought, might confer a degree of grown-up respectability, or even an unlikely air of sophistication. But he didn't realise that a passion for Black Sabbath didn't mean he couldn't also rock out to Bach . . . "

Amazon.com review:

"FIVE STARS!!! Seb Hunter is a very talented and entertaining writer. His humor is dry, observational, self-mocking, and extremely clever - in that haughty (?) British way. I personally have no interest in classical music at all, but I read this because I enjoyed his first book so much - and it was worth it. Hilarious anecdotes about traveling around trying to study the history of classical music. Strangely, the book IS very educational! But in a funny way. If only school had been this much fun, I might not have despised every second of it. So KUDOS to Seb Hunter, Rock and Roll Classical Metal God King!"
