Description
The author of the New York Times Notable Book Prague, Arthur Phillips here gives us a surprising romance in music, between a man who survives the unraveling of his life through the songs he obsessively listens to on his iPod, and the young singer he discovers and begins anonymously mentoring.

"Phillips's best writing achieves an elaborate, gratifying precision, combining a naturally flamboyant style with neat, observational wit. This quality is sharpest in some of the character portraits and delectable set pieces that animate this novel, his fourth.... A middle-aged advertising director, whose marriage has broken up following the death of his two-year-old son, plays an invisible and unlikely muse to a young Irish singer on the brink of stardom. As the two engage in an indirect seduction—they never meet—the narrative veers close to the 'adolescent fantasy' that its protagonist fears. But this curious bond provides an armature for Phillips's beautiful evocation of music's consoling power to blur the borders between art, artist, and consumer."—The New Yorker
