Summary
"A gunman seizes hostages a short drive from Leonard Lessing's house. His face leaps out of the evening news - and out of Leonard's own past." "Lennie Lessing is a jazzman taking a break. His glory days seem to be behind him, his body is letting him down, and rather than continue to take on the world, he relives old gigs and feeds his media addiction during solitary days at home. Increasingly estranged from his busy wife Francine, who is herself mourning the sudden absence of her only daughter, Leonard has found his own groove: suburban and safe from surprises. He could continue like this for years. Then comes the news bulletin that threatens to change everything." "Leonard has a choice to make." "Set in England, 2024, and George Bush's Texas, 2006, this novel wonders whether a life full of sound and fury signifies more than a life lived quietly, and asks what it truly means to love, to believe, and to be courageous." --Book Jacket
