Twelve Bar Blues, Paperback / softback Book

Twelve Bar Blues Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Spanning three continents and two centuries, Twelve Bar Blues is an epic tale of fate, family, friendship and jazz.

At its heart is Lick Holden, a young jazz musician, who sets New Orleans on fire with his cornet at the beginning of the last century.

But Lick's passion is to find his lost step-sister and that's a journey that leads him to a place he can call 'home'.

Meanwhile, at the other end of the century, we find Sylvia, an English prostitute, and Jim, a young drifter.

They're in search of Sylvia's past, lost somewhere in the mists of the Louisiana bayou. Patrick Neate has written a story that straddles time and space, love and friendship, roots and pilgrimage and everything between.

Poignant and hilarious, it will hook you - like a favourite tune - till the end.
