Overview

Love Letters in the Grand: The Adventures and Misadventures of a Big-City Piano Tuner by John Justice

From the Introduction

The 30 stories in this collection are all true. I tuned pianos in New York and Philadelphia from 1965 until 1993. The work was rewarding in and of itself, and the characters I met in those years bring back happy memories even today. --John Justice
About the Book

And what memories they are! There was plenty of drama, as well as more routine work. A few examples: The author tuned the piano for an Elvis Presley concert and one for a performance of the Bolshoi Ballet. He worked on a cruise ship and in a noisy department store. He once tuned the piano of a drug dealer, and another old piano housed a carefully preserved Tommy gun. There were numerous prima donnas (male and female) to try to deal with, plus a vicious dog he had to clobber with his tool kit to get him off his guide dog, Star. And there really was a stack of love letters hidden in a grand piano by a wayward girl.
The beloved Star is a character in her own right, a calm and loving companion to the author to the end of her working life. Any dog lover, blind or sighted, will enjoy the descriptions of her help and companionship. Throughout the book, the author’s dedication to his craft, his love of people and music, his strong work ethic, and his caring nature all shine through.
