This is, qute simply, a great book. It's a coming of age that lives in the music that the protagonist, a piano prodigy, makes. Conroy takes you into the city, into the music and into the soul of Claude Rawlings. I have recommended this book to many and all have enjoyed it. I wish that Conroy had written more novels.
