Publisher Comments:

Brooklyn lawyer Liza Durbin takes center stage for the ultimate musical comeback when Franz Schubert suddenly inhabits her mind and body. It seems the composer of the Unfinished Symphony has loose ends to tie up, and Liza is the reluctant vessel whose life is upended in the process. Acquiring genius in the middle of a perfectly good life might be a gift, a curse, or the germ of insanity. Liza's spiritual transformation begins at the shoe department of Nordstrom, where she is Christmas shopping. When the annoying store pianist takes a break, Liza is compelled to begin playing, which she does brilliantly, despite never having had any talent before. It isn't long before she realizes the musician within her is Franz Schubert. Franz's arrival radically changes Liza's relationships, career, and sense of self. Her supremely proud parents now think of themselves as Joseph and Mary. A volunteer mentor from Juilliard, a therapist, and a mysterious elderly fan all want to help. Liza's wandering boyfriend returns from Italy, unhappy to find an extra guy in their bed. As fans, critics, and TV quipsters chomp on every detail of Liza's life, she fights to keep her identity from being overrun by a dead composer's passion. In this joyful and thoroughly entertaining novel, Bonnie Marson celebrates genius, creativity, possibility, and the power of music. SLEEPING WITH SCHUBERT will transport you.

My book group read Sleeping with Schubert by Bonnie Marson and it sparked great discussion. It involves a woman who gets inhabited by Franz Schubert. Sudden genius and lots of complications. Very funny and thought-provoking. What a terrific book!
