The Blue Guitar (Paperback)

Usually Ships in 1-5 days


Nerves crunch at the international classical guitar competition in Montreal where musicians from all over the world fly in to compete. A career can be made or lost, and the slightest mishap - a lapse of memory, a shaking right hand - can ruin years of preparation. There is more than pretty music being performed on this stage.

Praise for The Blue Guitar…

On Exile:
"This is a wise, funny, sad, and compassionate book. Carlos's chagrin and pain are palpable, but Ireland holds out hope that as a clever man with a talent, he may transcend his shallow past and desperate present."--Quill & Quire
