Dennis McFarland is an award-winning author, whose novels include School For The Blind, A Face at the Window and his latest novel Singing Boy. He lives near Boston with his wife and two children.
A brother's death leads a man toward self-discovery in this sensitive and polished first novel. Marty Lambert, a San Francisco record company executive, is facing an impending divorce when his younger brother Perry, a talented com poser, commits suicide in New York. Mystified by his brother's death, Marty goes to New York to seek an explanation, following an elusive trail of clues that leads from his brother's friends to the troubled history of his wealthy Virginia family. In the end he learns as much about himself as Perry, coming to terms with a legacy of alcoholism. He pulls himself from the brink of destruction to acceptance and, ultimately, a de gree of redemption, carrying on his brother's unfinished work. A painful, haunting tale told with uncommon skill, The Music Room is a most impressive debut.
