Meet Vince Mori, an Italian Cumbrian, and a very passionate man. Vince is obsessed with women, the clarinet, and his trad jazz band, the Chompin Stompers. His romantic son Enzo is obsessed with only one woman, his brilliant Oxford contemporary, the world-famous guitarist, Fanny Golightly. Unfortunately, single-minded Fanny only has eyes for a Portuguese musical legend caled Toto Cebola. John Murray's revelatory new novel is the ideal read for all those interested in the cosmopolitan music scene and the Eternal Triangle.

John Murray was born in West Cumbria and now lives with his wife and daughter in Brampton, near Carlisle. In 1984 he founded the prestigious fiction magazine Panurge, which he and David Almond edited until 1996. He has published a collection of stories, Pleasure, for which he received the Dylan Thomas Award , in 1988, and six novels, Samarkand, Kin, Radio Activity, Reiver Blues, John Dory and Jazz Etc. John Dory won a Lakeland Book of the Year Award in 2002, and Jazz Etc. was longlisted for the Man-Booker Prize in 2003.
