Publisher's Summary

The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom is a novel about the fictional musician Frankie Presto and his amazing journey through music and life. Frankie's life story is told from the perspective of music, a fictional narrator. This is fitting, given that Frankie was one of the world's greatest guitarists.

The story, however, begins at its end: Frankie has died during a music festival. During a performance, his body levitates and then drops to the stage. The novel opens at Frankie's funeral, where music-industry figures - including nonfictional musicians such as Lyle Lovett and Ingrid Michaelson - have gathered to pay their respects and share their thoughts about the deceased guitarist. Music, the narrator, uses the opportunity of the funeral to reflect on Frankie's life.

Please Note: This is a summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book!
