Summary
The voice of Music narrates the tale of Frankie Presto, its most beloved disciple, a Spanish war orphan raised by a blind music teacher. Frankie, at nine years of age, is sent to America. Frankie's only possession is an old guitar and six magical strings. But Frankie's talent is touched by the gods, and it weaves him through the musical landscape of the twentieth century, from classical to jazz to rock and roll. Frankie influences many artists along the way: translates for Django Reinhardt, advises Little Richard, backs up Elvis Presley, and counsels Hank Williams. Frankie elevates to a rock star himself, yet his gift becomes his burden, as he realizes that he can actually affect people's futures: the guitar strings turn blue whenever a life is altered. Frankie disappears for years, overwhelmed by life, loss, and this power, only to reemerge in a spectacular and mysterious farewell. -- Provided by publisher, taken from container
