About this product
- DescriptionWhen journalist Jacob Florlen sets out on a journey to find a long lost musician who is rumored to still be living in the backwoods of Tennessee, he is both surprised and amazed at where his journeys take him. By weaving together a rich tapestry of vernacular music, religion, human psychology, mythology, and American history, this story tells the tale of two doomed men and their individual quests to conquer their own demons. One is a young reporter attempting to reconnect with his past. The second is an eccentric, storytelling fiddle player by the name of Flannigan Smite. It is a story steeped in the ethos of American folklore, from the Irish immigration of the 1800s, through the Postwar Era of the 1950s. This is a story that spans across hundreds of years of American culture. It is sure to excite the imaginations of readers and to remind them of their own sordid histories.
