Synopsis: Originally published by Bantam Books and hailed by critics, this love story, set in 1950s New York, Havana, and the deep south, begins with a divorce. In the eyes of Christie, their young daughter, Leo, and Tina Klein, mismatched and volatile, belong together.

Leo, a charming rogue and a player in New York’s garment industry, skates too close to the mob. Tina, a leftist activist who regularly pickets on behalf of the disadvantaged, has appointed herself manager of Joseph (“Ivory Joe”) Coulter, an ex boxer and a heart-busting black musician at a turning point in popular music history.

Meg Wolitzer wrote in the New York Times: “Mr. Burke weaves a deft plot involving the attempted theft of one of Ivory Joe’s songs, ‘Ghost Lover,’ and the ensuing escapades are frantic and convincing....Martyn Burke knows his territory and he keeps a jazzed up pace appropriate to the story and the era. ...A real pleasure.”

About the Author: MARTYN BURKE's previous novels include Laughing War, The Commissar's Report, Ivory Joe, Tiara, The Shelling of Beverly Hills, and The Truth About the Night. He is also a documentary film maker, whose Under Fire: Journalists in Combat won a Peabody Award in 2013. He has written extensively for film and television, most notably as writer of HBO'S timely and biting political satire, The Second Civil War; and writer/director of the hugely successful cable movie Pirates of Silicon Valley, which was nominated for five Emmys including Best Screenplay and Best Picture, the Producers Guild Award for Best Film, Directors Guild Award for Best Directing and the Writers Guild Award for Best Screenplay. His work has been nominated for numerous awards, including Emmys, Directors Guild, and Writers Guild awards. Recently, a series based on his novel The Commissar's Report, was sold to HBO. Born in Hamilton, Ontario, he now lives half the year in Toronto and the other half in Santa Monica. As a journal
