This title is the winner of the Whitbread Novel of the Year Award. Jazz musician Lick Holden is setting New Orleans on fire with his playing at the beginning of the 20th century. But Lick's passion is to find his lost step-sister. Meanwhile, at the end of the 20th century, Sylvia, an English prostitute, and her companion Jim are in search of Sylvia's past, lost somewhere in the Louisiana bayou. Crossing time and space, this is an epic tale of fate, family, friendship and jazz. This recording is unabridged.
