The music is deliberate and does not occur in every scene but rather in intense situations, for instance in scene 1 when Blanche and Stella discusses the loss of Belle Reve (Mays 1784).

A book to rehash this year, when a Black man is running for President of the United States. Conscious, excruciating and happy, and delightfully composed.
