Journal Entry 1 by jeniwren from Greigs Flat, New South Wales Australia on Wednesday, January 17, 2018
John Nickel is a black ex-jazz musician who only wants to be a good father. But when his son is taken away from him, he's left with nothing but the Memphis bar he manages. Then he hires Fay, a young white waitress, who has a volatile brother named Carl in tow. Nickel finds himself consumed with the idea of Taft -- Fay and Carl's dead father -- and begins to reconstruct the life of a man he never met. But his sympathies for these lost souls soon take him down a twisting path into the lives of strangers...

An enjoyable read once past the rather slow start. I didn't love the ending either - fine until the last chapter, but then it got a bit weird, or I was missing something.
