Diva Mawrdew Czgowchwz (pronounced "Mardu Gorgeous") bursts like the most brilliant of comets onto the international opera scene, only to confront the deadly malice and black magic of her rivals. Outrageous and uproarious, flamboyant and serious as only the most perfect frivolity can be, James McCourt's entrancing send-up of the world of opera has been a cult classic for more than a quarter-century. This comic tribute to the love of art is a triumph of art and love by a contemporary American master.

Sunlit, sparkling prose. So beautifully written and playful that it didn't matter that my interest in opera is minimal. It was a lovely read.

though the drama wanes a long way from the end the voice that feeds the languishing story remains endlessly entertaining, witty, literate, mercurial, you'll want to run, not walk, for more
