June 21st, 2012
At the age of fifty-eight, Henry Cage has been forced out of the management consulting firm he founded and guided for more than thirty years. Suddenly, his well-ordered life begins to unravel. His ex-wife is ill, his relationship with his son is strained to the point of estrangement, and on the eve of the new millennium he is the victim of a random violent act which soon escalates into a prolonged and mysterious harassment.
Full of exceptional grace and emotional power, David Abbott’s The Upright Piano Player is a wise and acutely observed novel about the myriad ways in which life tests us.
