A biography that doesn’t quite exist, about a violinist who can’t be found, as told by people who aren᾿t all there
Novelist Geoff Berner has been tasked with writing a biography of DD, a mysterious, charismatic, chimaerical journeywoman violinist who has, it seems, dropped off the face of the earth. But Berner finds her supposed friends painting him such contradictory portraits of her that he can’t separate fact from fiction. As his project is taken over by the lively, infuriating, entertaining testimony, DD herself starts to get lost in all the eyewitness accounts and swear-to-god true stories.
Who is DD? Where did she go? And what happened to her book? Travel through a world of knockabout musicians, train hoppers, and fierce women, on the trail of an inimitable artist who really lives in the moment while others are just fiddling around.
