Music himself narrates this book. We learn that music visits newborns and tempts them to grab a bit of talent--or even a lot of talent. Frankie grabbed enough to be the best guitar player on the planet. He amazed everyone. Played with a lot of bands. Got famous. Got rich. But he was forever haunted about his past, the fact he knew nothing about his parents. This is a story told in flashbacks. I liked Frankie, though I suppose if he lived next door where he practiced his guitar 24/7, he would drive me nuts. He sacrifices a lot for his music, too much, perhaps, so there's heartbreak in this story along with love.
