The three stories in this small book are a work of fiction inspired by the haunting and ambitious music of Robert Johnson. Given the state of the 1930s Mississippi Delta, Mr. Johnson wrote and performed with bold and reckless confidence.
The core of the Delta bluesmen can be heard in the bones of today's commercial music. If you listen hard you can hear Mr. Johnson leaving town, leaving a woman, waiting for his train, sitting against a tree strumming his guitar quietly. This small book is for those who hear that.
