I'm currently reading this book. It's fascinating, and when I'm finished I'll try to post a short review. (If it's not already overdue at the library, that is.
The play The Piano Lesson
by American playwright August Wilson, is discussed in the book. It sounded very interesting, and as it turned out, was being revived Off-Broadway. My wife and I just caught the last performance, and it was truly hypnotic. We bought a hard copy of the play and will both read it. One of the few plays in which a piano is one of the major characters. In this production, I imagine that most of the audience spent about 1/3 of the time looking at the piano, so this is not just a figure of speech.
