Synopsis:

Ernst told them not to go out. Said don’t you boys tempt the devil. But the cheap beer in his gut must have made Hieronymus think a glass of milk would be worth the risk. Of course Ernst was right, and the star player on the Berlin scene of the late 1930s, right before the war began for the second time, was taken away that night by the Boots. An easy target, being a mixed-race German. Not like the others, the Americans, Europeans, black, white and Jewish, who could hide a while longer.Fifty years later and Sidney’s going back, to hear for the first time the unfinished recording the band was making, the obsession that kept them there long after it was safe. The thing that stopped them using those visas while they were still good. As Sidney discovers his friends’ secrets and wrestles with a few he’s kept to himself for half a century, Esi Edugyan;s novel weaves the horror of betrayal, the meaning of courage and the possibility that, if you don’t tell your story, someone else just might tell it for you. And they might tell it different...

This is a new part of an old story: 1930s Berlin, the threat of imprisonment and the powerful desire to make something beautiful despite the horror. Chip told us not to go out. Said, don t you boys tempt the devil. But it s been one brawl of a night, I tell you. The aftermath of the fall of Paris, 1940. Hieronymous Falk, a rising star on the cabaret scene, was arrested in a cafe and never heard from again. He was twenty years old. He was a German citizen. And he was black. Fifty years later, Sid, Hiero s bandmate and the only witness that day, is going back to Berlin. Persuaded by his old friend Chip, Sid discovers there s more to the journey than he thought when Chip shares a mysterious letter, bringing to the surface secrets buried since Hiero s fate was settled. In Half Blood Blues , Esi Edugyan weaves the horror of betrayal, the burden of loyalty and the possibility that, if you don t tell your story, someone else might tell it for you. And they just might tell it wrong. Bookseller Inventory # LVN9781846687754
