Overview

Winner of the Whitbread Novel of the Year, Twelve Bar Blues weaves an epic, jazz-soaked tale of families and secrets. Virtuoso cornet player Lick Holden is all the rage in early 20th-century New Orleans. But he is haunted by thoughts of his missing stepsister. Nearly a century later, Sylvia Di Napoli travels from London to America seeking her roots-and uncovers a long-buried romantic betrayal. "An endearing romp. Continents, and eras, come together in an infectious celebration of a mixed-up music ."-Independent
