Janet | 12 comments I just have a vague idea in the back of my mind about a story where a boy, or young man makes (platonic) friends with an older man who mends pianos in a workspace behind his shop. I don't remember anything else about it

You know, I think it might be! Hadn't occurred to me that it might be non fiction. I shall get it anyway, sounds really interesting. I just had this picture in my head with nothing else to go on. I love books about Paris so that's probably why I read it in the first place. Thank you x

Arielle Masters | 252 comments If that wasn't the book, was it definitely piano repair and not general furniture repair? Because we read The Goldfinch for a book club and it had a boy who ended up hanging out with a man who repaired/restored/antiqued furniture and was helping him. That portion is in NYC.
