In deceptively simple prose mirroring the understatement of bluegrass music, Fiddler's Dream tells the story of a young musician of prodigious talent who pursues his dream of becoming one of Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Boys as he tracks the whereabouts of his missing musician father.
"Spatz renews the timeless odyssey of a gifted young man seeking his fortune and his father. With its sure-fingered rhythms and long, gorgeous passages of prose, Fiddler's Dream contains some of the best writing I've ever read about music."-Lan Samantha Chang
"A lovely and evocative story, told with precision and infinite care. This is the best writing about making music since Frank Conroy's Body and Soul."-Mark Childress
"Spatz's control of language and metaphor is masterful. An outstanding work. Read this one!"-Gordon Weaver
