520    "Franois Lesure's "critical biography" of Claude Debussy 
       (Fayard, 2003) is widely recognized by scholars as the 
       most comprehensive and reliable account of that composer's
       life and career as well as of the artistic milieu in which
       he worked. This encyclopedic volume draws extensively on 
       Debussy's complete correspondence (at that time 
       unpublished), a painstaking tracking of contemporary 
       reviews and comments in the press, and an examination of 
       other primary documents-including private diaries-that had
       not been available to previous biographers. As such, 
       Lesure's book presents a wealth of new information while 
       debunking a number of myths that had developed over the 
       years since the composer's death in 1918. The present 
       English translation and revised edition, by Debussy 
       authority Marie Rolf, augments Lesure's numerous notes 
       with several thousand new ones by Rolf, providing more 
       precise information on crucial and sometimes contentious 
       points. It also reflects Debussy scholarship that has 
       appeared since 2003, updating Lesure's seminal work. 
       Rolf's translation-the first ever-will make Lesure's 
       findings accessible to scholars, musicians, and music 
       lovers in English-speaking lands and around the world."
