The Gustav Sonata (Norton) by Rose Tremain is the story of best friends Anton Zweibel and Gustav Pearle. Anton is a musical prodigy. Gustav must take care of his widowed mother. Betsy Burton calls the novel a “wise and beautiful masterpiece.”
Then, Cary Ann Hearst, one half of the husband-and-wife duo Shovels & Rope, says it does the listener more good to hear a tune that’s about everybody, not just somebody. They’ll bring their Americana sound to The Depot on Thursday, November 17th.
