Live Music and Books!
This collection of alert, witty, and world-wise limericks by the great New Orleans jazz pianist and composer - illustrated with his own drawings - is a snapshot of a restlessly creative mind and heart at play. These "personal nursery rhymes" demonstrate that simplicity of means need not be incompatible with sophistication of ends. In all their various modes - the frivolously comic, the self-deprecating, the wistful, the gently mocking, the philosophical - a very individual elegance and generosity of spirit are always to be found.
This book is available in paperback ($12.95).
Join us for a great evening as Tom McDermott plays some music then discusses and signs his book, Five Lines No Waiting: Limericks and Sketches.
If you are unable to attend, you must call the book shop to order signed books.
