AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Lucy McBride, aged thirteen, is roused from a summer slumber one summer day by the haunting music coming from the stereo. It is a life changing moment and she devotes herself to the study of the cello - for "that", she decides, is what she wants to do with her life. This leads to a fascination, an obsession with the artist playing that music, Fortuny. She not only devotes herself to the cello, but Fortuny - the embodiment of the myth of the Romantic artist - "the most enchanting of myths" - and, at the age of twenty-three, goes to Venice to meet him. The novel then describes what happens when someone attempts to live out a dream.' (Pubisher's blurb)
