Chrissie Shomeret, do you judge that what is fact and what is fiction ic sufficiently clarified in the novel? Is there for example a good "author's note'? If you have time to write a review, I would appreciate it!

Shomeret Yes, there is an author's note--a very long one. He does discuss what is fiction and what is fact--and a great deal more about how he came to write the book. The book is fiction, but I think I understood Mozart better after reading it.

Chrissie Shomeret, I will keep it on my wish-list! This seems to be what I am looking for. Thanks.

Shomeret You should know that Mozart never appears in the novel. It starts after his death. But we learn things about Mozart. We also learn about his family relationships.
