Ed Pavlic: Winners Have Yet to Be Announced – A Song for Donny Hathaway (University of Georgia Press)
Mark Anthony Neal, PopMatters, 21 April 2008
I'VE SPENT better part of that last 20-years – what seems like a lifetime – trying to write about Donny Hathaway. It's not as though I haven't written about Hathaway, but Hathaway's music, his Soul really, demands a level of emotional commitment that, frankly, overwhelms the logic of my vocations as writer and critic. I mean, after listening to Donny Hathaway sing and moan and hum and caress that piano/Fender Rhodes, what the hell else is there to write about?
