Edwin St. Andrew is eighteen years old when he crosses the Atlantic by steamship, exiled from polite society following an ill-conceived diatribe at a dinner party. He enters the forest, spellbound by the beauty of the Canadian wilderness, and suddenly hears the notes of a violin echoing in an airship terminal.
Two centuries later a famous writer named Olive Llewellyn is on a book tour. Within the text of Olive’s best-selling pandemic novel lies a strange passage: a man plays his violin for change in the echoing corridor of an airship terminal as the trees of a forest rise around him.
When Gaspery-Jacques Roberts, a detective in the black-skied Night City, is hired to investigate an anomaly in the North American wilderness, he uncovers a series of lives upended.
With The Friends, moderator Jeff Kamin brings his unique take on a public book club show to Saint Paul. Even if you don't like the featured book, he "guarantees a good time at our entertaining discussions." All are welcome to try this moderated reinvention of the book club.
