Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New paperback from the author of the prize- winning "The Shipping News, Postcards" and "Heart Songs". This masterpiece begins in Sicily in 1890. An accordion maker and his son journey to New Orleans with little more than his finest button accordion. Within a year the accordion maker is dead, but the story continues as his accordion is passed from one immigrant community to another - Mexicans, Poles, Germans, Irish, Scots and French-Canadians.

Synopsis:

When an accordion-maker is murdered, his finest button accordion carries the novel on to illuminate the lives of the founders of a nation. Nine intricately connected stories allow Mexicans, Poles, Germans, Irish, Scots and Franco-Canadians to express their fantasies, sorrows and exuberance.
