A beautiful hardcover selection of the most memorable and beloved lyrics of America’s greatest composer and lyricist, Stephen Sondheim. AN EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY POCKET POET.

Legendary composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim (1930-2021) made his Broadway debut with West Side Story in 1957 at the age of twenty-seven. Along his remarkable and wide-ranging career spanning more than six decades, he accumulated accolades that include eight Tony Awards, an Academy Award, eight Grammy Awards, six Laurence Olivier Awards, a Pulitzer Prize, the Kennedy Center Honors, and a Presidential Medal of Freedom. Sondheim redefined musical theater with his groundbreaking work, combining words and music in ways that are by turns challenging, moving, witty, profound, and never less than exhilarating.

This volume includes a selection of lyrics from across his career, drawn from shows including West Side Story, Gypsy, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods, and more, including:

• “Somewhere” from West Side Story
• “Momma’s Talkin’ Soft” from Gypsy
• “A Hero is Coming” from Anyone Can Whistle
• “Someone Like You” from Do I Hear A Waltz
• “Being Alive” from Company
• “The Road You Didn’t Take” from Follies
• “Send in the Clowns” from A Little Night Music
• “Not While I’m Around” from Sweeney Todd
• “Sunday” from Sunday in the Park with George
• “Children Will Listen” from Into the Woods
The result is a delightful pocket-sized treasury of the very best of Sondheim.
