Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The death of legendary jazz trumpeter Joss Moody exposes an extraordinary secret. Unbeknown to all but his wife Millie, Joss was a woman living as a man. The discovery is most devastating for their adopted son, Colman, whose bewildered fury brings the press to the doorstep and sends his grieving mother to the sanctuary of a remote Scottish village. A novel about the lengths to which people will go for love, Trumpet is a moving story of a shared life founded on an intricate lie, of loving deception and lasting devotion, and of the intimate workings of the human heart. `Jackie Kay makes the unbelievable gloriously real. Trumpet is a love story and a lament, beautifully told' Time Out `The voices in this tender, compassionate work were still singing in my head a couple of weeks after I'd finished it' Observer `This book is all about love . . . The qualities of sympathy and tenderness in the novel make it special and make Kay a writer to respect' Guardian
