Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the summer of 1955, Madison Lee "Bobo" Murphy was a waiter at the Catskills' Pine Hill Inn. A rural Southerner, he had never heard the word meshugge until Avrum Feldman — a retired New York City furrier — became his unlikely friend. For Bobo, nothing about that special time and place ever lost its glow: Avrum's obsession with the haunting voice of a famous opera diva, music that no one else could hear; the exotic mingling of Yiddish and German in the dining room; and the girl he met and loved.

In everyone's life, Avrum claimed, there is one grand, undeniable moment that never stops mattering. For Bobo, it was his first glimpse of beautiful Amy Lourie. But, for a wealthy Jewish girl and a Georgia farm boy, the summer had to end, leaving Bobo with the pain of lost love. Nearly forty years later, his children grown and marriage comfortably routine, Bobo comes north once more; there, amidst the haunting hints of Amy's presence, she unexpectedly appears. Nothing has dimmed the passion of their youth, yet two lifetimes and a thousand Catskills sunsets stand between who they were and who they have become. The barriers between them are different now. But mysteriously, miraculously, Bobo reawakens the dream of a love larger than himself....

Synopsis:

The author of To Dance With the White Dog offers readers another bit of magic. In the summer of 1955, a young Southerner, Madison Lee "Bobo" Murphy waited tables at the Pine Hill Inn in the Catskills, and shared a season of passion with Amy Lourie. Years later, when they meet again, Bobo reawakens a love larger than himself.

Shadow song is multiple love stories - love for a performing artist at a distance, love for a past love brought to the present, and love for a tortured artist and his rescued woman. This is Terry Kay in an unusual environment-the Jewish Catskills of his youth where he worked in summers rather than the northeast Georgia or his birth. This place was as foreign to him as a distant planet, but he found long term relationships here-with a girl he loved and with an old man who taught him important life lessons. This is one of Terry's best novels and one of the few set outside of the south. His other really great novels are "The Book of Marie" (my favorite), "To Dance with the White Dog", and "Taking Lottie Home". These are personal preferences-any Kay novel is a great read.
