Abstract:

From American Book Award winner Eric Drooker, this is a story for the ages, beginning with the agrarian past, through the industrial present, and into the technological future. A young woman bravely escapes a military assault on her island village, journeying across the ocean to arrive, unknowingly, in the Big City. There she meets and falls in love with a saxophone player, who makes heartfelt music. The police find and silence him, confiscating his saxophone and warning him not to make music again as it's strictly forbidden in the Big City. When the street musician continues to make music with his voice the police soon find and imprison him, making the future uncertain for the talented performer and the brave woman who loves him. Blood Song transcends the boundaries of conventional novels--a wordless tale written in the ancient language of pictures. Escaping a military assault and journeying across the ocean to the Big City, a young woman falls in love with a saxophone player who is later arrested for making music, which is forbidden. By the American Book Award-winning author of Flood!
