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.
