|The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto Book Cover Art|
(source: hotlinked from Mitch Albom newsletter)
I just got this news from a newsletter. See sysnopsi of Mitch Albom's new novel below:
"This is the epic story of the greatest guitar player who ever lived, and the six lives he changed with his six magical blue strings.
Born under ringing chimes of a burning church, Frankie's amazing journey from a war-torn Spanish town to America weaves him through the musical landscape of the 1940s, 50's and 60's, his stunning talent affecting numerous stars along the way (Duke Ellington, Hank Williams, Elvis Presley) until, as if predestined, he becomes a pop star himself. But Frankie Presto's gift is also his burden, as he realizes the power of the magical strings his childhood teacher gave him, and how, through his music, he can actually change people's fates.
With the voice of music as our guide, we glimpse into the lives that were changed by one man whose strings could touch the music—and the magic—in each of us.
I have never had more fun writing a book, and have never been more pleased with how a story grew. This will be my longest book by far, and the most epic. It's a sort of Forest Gump-like romp through the world of music. And Frankie is the most interesting character I've ever created.
As a lifelong musician, it has been my privilege to share the message that "everyone joins a band in this life" and that music, like love, has the power to affect us all. And I cannot wait for you to read it."
