There are millions of stories in the city - some magical, some tragic, others terror-filled or triumphant. Jonah Kirk's story is all of those things as he draws readers into his life in the city as a young boy, introducing his indomitable grandfather, also a "piano man"; his single mother, a struggling singer; and the heroes, villains, and everyday saints and sinners who make up the fabric of the metropolis in which they live - and who will change the course of Jonah's life forever. Welcome to The City, a place of evergreen dreams where enchantment and malice entwine, where courage and honor are found in the most unexpected corners and the way forward lies buried deep inside the heart.

"The narrative of Jonah Kirk comes to life through the voice of narrator Korey Jackson. Kirk has a tale to tell about his life in the city and about The City itselfÑwhich he considers his life-long companion. From childhood to old age, Kirk's life takes strange twists and turns that lead him down dark paths. But he follows those paths because of his love for The City, the source of all of his encounters and predicaments. Jackson's voice has a deep and projecting tone that becomes quickly engaging. He embodies Kirk when the story is told in the first person. He also delivers distinctive voices for the other characters and keeps the story moving. L.E. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
