Stewart Kautsch has just written an interesting review on this book. I've never heard heard of the pianist before, but it sounds like her father was similar to Lang Lang's.

Thank you, Stu!! It's on the main site. Here is the link:

I had the pleasure of meeting her when I taught for a time at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville in the 1990s where she was Artist in Residence. She is amazingly tiny; 5' tall at MAXIMUM. So when you listen to her play realize that she was no Jorge Bolet towering over a 9' grand.
