This is a wonderful journey through the history and joys of the guitar and the people who enjoy listening, playing and appreciating its lyrical qualities. The author, Tim Brookes, weaves a clever series of vignettes about the crafting of a custom made guitar in Vermont, while recanting the evolution of this hardy, stringed instrument. It is no small wonder that certain 'twists of fate' in the 20th Century, captured eloquently here, have proven to be the patron of the guitar and its hallowed place in America and the Globe. This was a book I could not put down. A masterful bit of prose.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
