Audio Format Add your own review!

Overview

Ray Shackleford is trying to deal with the death of his father and the collapse of his marriage when the impossible happens: music that no one has ever heard before begins to play from his stereo speakers. It is only the first step on a journey that will take him to Los Angeles, London, Cozumel, and points far beyond, and that will bring him face to face with Jim Morrison, Brian Wilson, Jimi Hendrix-and his own mortality.

Reviews

Powerfully affecting. Much more than yuppie reunions like The Big Chill, this captures a generation's sweet, desperate yearning for the 60s. -- Kirkus Reviews Shiner writes with intense feeling...The novel sparkles...A story of uncommon sensitivity, insight, and redemptive power. -- Publishers Weekly I hesitate to call a book 'important, ' but this may well be that...I found it deeply satisfying. -- St. Louis Post-Dispatch A pop-music fairy tale linking the Beatles to Bruno Bettelheim. -- Village Voice A psychedelic odyssey...soars on the escapist wings of a re-created era. -- Rolling Stone Almost no one can approach Shiner's mastery in capturing the experience of listening to a brilliant song...Even more, the skillful way that Shiner weaves the music into the stories of Ray and the world around him makes them into an inseparable, twined-together braid, a chord of emotion and tension that has moments of heartbreak, joy, and even terror...Rudnicki gave a beautiful performance, full of passion and understanding for the text, and the source material is just so good. If you love rock and roll, fantasy, science fiction, and/or audiobooks, I recommend this to you without reservation. -- Cory Doctorow, author of Homeland
