Read an Excerpt from The Fisher King: A Novel


Paperback Description:
In 1949, Sonny-Rett Payne, a jazz pianist, fled New York for Paris to escape both his family’s disapproval of his music and the racism that shadowed his career. Now, decades later, his eight-year-old grandson is brought to Payne’s old Brooklyn neighborhood to attend a memorial concert in his honor. The child’s visit reveals the persistent family and community rivalries that drove his grandfather into exile.
The Fisher King — a moving story of jazz, love, family conflict, and the artists’ struggles in society — offers hope in the healing and redemptive power of one memorable boy.
