GUEST,Nikki 'Musical' Novels (115* d) RE: 'Musical' Novels 15 Jun 00

I heartily second many of the recommendations made here. Also want to mention Lee Smith's "The Devil's Dream." It's available in paperback and from libraries. Tells the story (family saga type) of a country-western/bluegrass singing family with perhaps some similarities to the Carter family, but it is not a roman a clef. All her books are good and as I recall probably have music in them somewhere as they are mostly set in the Southern mountains.
