The Piano Tuner by Daniel Mason

The Piano Tuner

The Piano Tuner is the story of Edgar Drake. In 1886 Edgar receives a commission from the British War Office to tune a piano in the jungles of Burma. What Mason has managed to do is write a vivid story that plays in the mind like a movie. The plot could have been better but everything else was first rate. The richness of the book reminded me of Paul Bowles, “Under The Sheltering Sky.”
