Book description
"Belle's mother was a drummer in an all-women's group before she turned vegetarian and went to live in a shack in the hills. Her father was a trumpeter Belle met for the first time in a Manhattan jazz bar. She had a husband too, briefly - an upwardly mobile deputy librarian searching for the perfect sauce. Belle even had a best friend once, whose ebullience was finally subdued in vermouth and leather sofas.

"Their selves were their centres, and Belle realised she'd have to research much further to find her own. If it were not in the music of memory, perhaps she'd find it in the backblocks, where her blow-up sepia dream lover might be conjured out of the past into the ugly circumference of her present.

"Perhaps at Tin River?"
