Blues. Hari Kunzru wrote almost three hundred pages of a novel titled, White Tears, that puts into prose all the complex art of a classic blues song. Many contrasts under tension are included: rich and poor; black and white; exploiters and the exploited; the past and the present; analog and digital. The plot involves a rare blues song and the legacy of that music across time. The deep emotions of the blues permeate the novel and Kunzru pulls readers back and forth across time and characters until we fall under the spell of his art.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
