What Reviewers Are Saying
"A sensitively-written account of a musician caught in a rupture of history, the potentially devastating impact this has on his life and his gradual rehabilitation. Music runs through the book as a connecting thread and the powerful force which pulls Daniel back from the brink of despair." Frances Wilson - pianist, writer and concert reviewer
