Reviews

Praise for Brendan Slocumb's The Violin Conspiracy

"Finally, classical music gets the complex treatment it deserves. A wide-eyed look at the art form and its discontents.
--Gary Shteyngart, New York Times bestselling author of Little Failure and Lake Success

Magnificent, from the first page to the last, the pace never slackens. It is a gorgeous read. Old violins, international music competitions, human greed, determination, decency--all of these feature in this first-rate novel. The reader will learn about how difficult it is to get anywhere in the world of classical music if your face doesn't fit the prejudiced expectations of some people. All of that is here, and it is all related with dignity, humour and forbearance. It's a wonderful tale by a very fine author who happens to know a lot about music.
--Alexander McCall Smith, bestselling author of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series

"The Violin Conspiracy reminds all of us that dreams are worth pursuing, no matter the obstacles in front of us. The struggle to follow your heart is always the same--and this novel inspires us to take the chance, make the leap, and dare to be better. This was a wonderful read."
--Misty Copeland, New York Times bestselling author of Life in Motion and principal dancer, American Ballet Theatre
