GUEST,silver 'Musical' Novels (112* d) RE: 'Musical' Novels 18 Feb 16


Someone mentioned Steinbeck's "Grapes of Wrath" - long time since I read it, but I recall a chapter where the migrant workers had a dance, and a number of well-known tunes were mentioned. Also, earlier in the novel, the first time the Preacher appears, he is singing to himself.
Laurie Lee's "Cider with Rosie", "I walked out one Midsummer morning", and "A Rose for Winter" - like Woody Guthrie's books, somewhere between autobiography and fiction - deal a lot with music.

And, of course, there is the fairly recent "Revival", by Scott Alarik.
