Beschreibung

A novel based on the true story of Valaida Snow, the black female jazz trumpeter of the 20s and 30s.

Autorentext

Candace Allen received her BA from Harvard before attending the New York University School of Film and Television, becoming the first African-American female member of the Directors Guild of America. She has been an assistant director, a screenwriter and now a novelist.



Klappentext

From a childhood in Chattanooga, to a debut at one of the swankiest clubs in Harlem in its heyday; from touring in the Jim Crow south, to showcasing in Shanghai and London in the 30s, the story of Valaida Snow is breathtaking. With a storyteller's ear and a blessed ability to transport her reader, Candace Allen has written a sweeping tale of love, degradation, laughter and longing - with a trumpet accompaniment you swear you can hear.
