"Inspired by the legendary jazz pianist Oscar Peterson, and imbued with magical realism, Mauricio Segura evokes the atmosphere of the cabarets of 1950s in this swinging novel. Segura offers a fascinating reflection on the bonds between an artist and the community he comes from, celebrity, and the commercialization of art. But above all, it's a poignant homage to a music giant."-- Provided by publisher.
