No Room for Squares is a new American classic that celebrates the power of simplicity. This graceful novel follows the misadventures of a young investment banker turned jazz musician, and his peculiar band of friends as they search for a few bars of harmony at the turn of the 21st century. Infused with the language and culture of music, No Room for Squares explores the meaning of jazz as it relates to life outside of the boundaries of music.
