I read another copy of this book in 2000. This is what I wrote about it after I read it...

While strolling to take his children to school in Paris, an American gentleman becomes intrigued with a small shop that displays piano parts in its window. The story of how he discovers that there is more to this small shop than of what he was first aware is a tale of piano history, piano mechanics, piano care, life in Paris, and friendship. Luc, the new owner of this shop, welcomes the American into the back of his store and helps him become more accepted by his French neighbors through a reawakening interest in playing a piano.

Enjoy the book!

I read the first few chapters and realized I was really bored.
So I'm passing it along at the next BCinDC meetup. If no one claims it, I'll wild release it nearby.

I saw this on the table at the meet-up and recognized it as a title I have been interested in reading. I think it is on the wishlist of someone going to Australia -- or maybe just someone I know.
