âBel Cantoâ¦should be on the list of every literate music lover. The story is riveting, the participants breathe and feel and are alive, and throughout this elegantly-told novel, music pours forth so splendidly that the reader hears it and is overwhelmed by its beauty.â âLloyd Moss, WXQR
âGlorious.â âThe New Yorker
Ann Pratchettâs award winning, New York Times bestselling Bel Canto balances themes of love and crisis as disparate characters learn that music is their only common language. As in Patchettâs other novels, including Truth & BeautyÂ and The Magicianâs Assistant, the authorâs lyrical prose and lucid imagination make Bel Canto a captivating story of strength and frailty, love and imprisonment, and an inspiring tale of transcendent romance.
