A new biography of Joseph F. Lamb
was published by McFarland in 2012. The book is “Joseph
F. Lamb: A Passion for Ragtime” by author Carol J. Binkowski.
Carol is an essayist, book reviewer and non-fiction writer who
lives in Bloomfield, NJ. Her work has appeared in the New York
Times and The Washington Post. Although she is fairly new to
ragtime, Carol is a pianist with a fine appreciation for the
details of Lamb’s life. The book is a fascinating read,
and it includes a wonderful foreword by two of Lamb’s
children, Patricia Lamb Conn and Robert J. Lamb. The book, which
retails for $35, can be ordered at McFarland’s website,
and Barnes & Noble www.bn.com
offer it at the same price but without shipping charges.
