Synopsis

All That Follows by Jim Crace

Leonard Lessing once cast a spell on stage, hypnotizing crowds with his improvised jazz, easy in his music, at home in the moment. Now, home is somewhere he never leaves. His sax is silent, his marriage faltering, his stepdaughter vanished, and his life shrinking -- until one afternoon the TV brings news he can't ignore. A figure from his firebrand past has arrived in town, with hair-raising results. Can Leonard face the limelight one last time? 'Rich, cleverly constructed ...a funny, heartwarming and hugely enjoyable read' Herald 'All That Follows sends an artist in the doldrums on a quest to recover his valour. Crace writes gloriously' Independent 'Alive and kicking ...Crace writes with real feel and imagination about music' Sunday Times 'Blending comedy with a touch of pathos, this is an unexpectedly joyful novel' Daily Mail

Reviews

[Crace's] characters beguile readers with their emotional authenticity and detailed psychologies. His prose carries the contours of a Donatello sculpture as Crace chisels gracefully flowing sentences with eloquence, precision and the occasional cheeky hint of the impish. -- San Francisco Chronicle From the Hardcover edition.

Lovereading are lovely people who send me lovely books. What's not to love?

Gavin Dimmock

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

Magda North

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

Maggie Crane

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

Lovereading recommends, honestly reviews and promotes books-what more can I say?!

Rachel Bridgeman

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.
