The lives of two women – one in 1960s Soviet Union, one in 2010s California – are linked in this novel by one very cumbersome object: a huge German Blüthner piano. While one woman loves the instrument for giving her a way to express herself, the other remains stuck with the piano as she’s trying to start a new life and cannot leave the burden of memory behind. This is a story of how the past comes to weigh on the present, told evocatively by Texan author Cander.
