9780099255154: Violin

Triana's grief is deep and almost boundless. Death has marked her, and taken her husband. Now only the music in her dreams can carry her from night to night. And now, into those dreams, into those nights, comes Stefan, the restless, tormented ghost of a Russian aristocrat.

Stefan's musical genius will first enchant Triana, then dominate her sothat she will be drawn into the cruel past in which he lived his earthly life. Finally Triana will find herself in the realm of ghosts and spectres where an ally awaits her...

Surreal, dramatic and mesmerising, Violin moves across time and continents to bring together three lost souls bound to one another through music, passion and rapture.

Review:

If neatness counts for you, don't count on Anne Rice's musical-ghost novel Violin. It is an eruption of the author's personal demons, as messy as the monster bursting from that poor fellow's chest in the movie Alien. Like Rice, the heroine Triana lives in New Orleans, mourns a dead young daughter and a drunken mother, and is subject to uncanny visions. A violin-virtuoso ghost named Stefan time-trips and globetrots with Triana, taunting her for her inability to play his Stradivarius--which echoes composer Salieri's jealousy in Amadeus and possibly Rice's jealousy of her successful poet husband Stan Rice in the years before her own florid, lurid writing made her famous. The storytelling here is too abstract, but the almost certainly autobiographical emotions could not be more visceral. At one point, the narrator exclaims, "Shame, blame, maim, pain, vain!" But Rice's dip in the acid bath of memory was not in vain--she packs the pain of a lifetime into 289 pages.

Review:

"Enough to frighten even jaded readers. If anyone can make a haunted violin the object of obsession and nightmare, it's Rice" ( Publishers Weekly)

"For nearly twenty years now, Anne Rice has been telling stories that share secrets - secrets of life and death, of sex and the soul, of monsters and humans" (Mikal Gilmore Rolling Stone)
