His education is not confined to music alone, he also finds himself in a world where ego is everything, the musicians are black, and the drink and drugs the fuel of creativity. Caught up in the violence of the city, Magnani flees on a journey through the southern provinces and his own mental state too. His personal odyssey is complete when he returns to the club scene of New York in a dramatic climax to his career and this atmospheric novel.
