message 1: by Thom (new)

Thom Dunn HELP WANTED: Will Work For Books-----"The Cellist of Sarajevo" is blocking out my every attempt to find the name of the author of "The Cellist"--an award winning, honored, or short listed court-room drama about a Cellist called up for jury duty. Side-plot : He's out of work as a cellist because his ear has b ecome TOO acute.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Hmmm ... the only book that comes to mind is a story about a cellist on jury duty by Mark Salzman, but it's called The Soloist -- so that's probably not it, is it?


message 3: by Bettie (new)

Bettie Wow - so many books I have read but not listed AND so many books I would love to read. These lists are great!


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Yes -- this is one of the lists where I'd even wish I was allowed more than 100 entries!!
