Description
The delightful and quirky world of Barbara Trapido's novels has gained her a broad following over more than a decade, hitting bestseller lists in Britain and eliciting raves both there and in the US. Her Brother of the More Famous Jack was hailed by the San Francisco Examiner as "wise and warm, full of charm" and by the Los Angeles Times as "modern and hip" while The Wall Street Journal praised "her sharp sense of social nuances" and how she "manages to make the improbable surprisingly possible." Trapido's witty, intelligent, heartbreakingly human characters now reappear in her latest tale of love, marriage, family, and other absurdities of the human comedy.The Travelling Hornplayer, the story of two sisters and the intricate connections of their lives, is a wonderful dance of death and love, of human misunderstandings and their farcical, sometimes tragic consequences.
