Manhattan Road Trip
In Robin Meloy Goldsby’s musical tales of passion, wild success and gut-wrenching regret, a classical pianist battles middle age and Rachmaninoff; a bebop saxophonist struggles with a varmint sharing her New York City apartment; and a cellist performs Mozart for her mentally ill mother. Filled with the biting humor and razor-sharp honesty familiar to Goldsby’s Piano Girl fans, thirteen sparkling fictional stories illuminate the not-so-public lives of musicians. Fragile, feisty, courageous, but sometimes just plain world-weary, Goldsby’s unbreakable protagonists push aside little injustices, dodge the slings and arrows of their tone-deaf neighbors, and keep playing the music they love. “Goldsby spins her short stories like a fine bebop solo, with down-to-earth themes and joyous 'what’s-coming-next?' improvisation.” Bill Mays (jazz pianist and composer, New York City)
