Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Each song on Julian’s iPod, “that greatest of all human inventions,” is a touchstone. There are songs for the girls from when he was single, there’s the one for the day he met his wife-to-be, there’s one for the day his son was born. But when Julian’s family falls apart, even music loses its hold on him.

    Until one snowy night in Brooklyn, when his life’s soundtrack—and life itself—start to play again. Julian stumbles into a bar and sees Cait O’Dwyer, a flame-haired Irish rock singer, performing with her band, and a strange and unlikely love affair is ignited. Over the next few months, Julian and Cait’s passion plays out, though they never meet. What follows is a heartbreaking dark comedy, the tenderest of love stories, and a perfectly observed tale of the way we live now.

Larry Robinson, August 16, 2010 (view all comments by Larry Robinson)
I had read great reviews of this book when it was first released, but I didn't get around to reading it until a recent vacation. Take my word on this, you don't want to wait two years to get to it. This is a wonderful story that evokes so many emotions. Bizarely, it is a wonderful love story about two people who never meet. It is also a great treatise on the power of music. It's a love letter to New York. And, not least of all, it is so well written. I cna't recommend this book highly enough.
