    Rufus Wainwright

    Top Ten Books

    Described by Sir Elton John as “the greatest songwriter on the planet,” Rufus Wainwright has recorded seven albums, with an eighth—“Tackle All My Loves: 9 Shakespeare Sonnets”—due on April 22. From show tunes to opera, from the songs of Judy Garland to Shakespeare’s Sonnets, Wainwright is a musical chameleon who draws inspiration from history, sexuality, and his own great lineage as the son of Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle. “I am a self-sustaining, vibrant, long-term artist, and I’m not going away,” he once said. Who could doubt him?

    Below are Rufus Wainwright’s favorite books, available to purchase as a set or individually.
