See author Paulette Jiles in conversation with Naomi Shihab Nye.
Paulette Jiles, the critically acclaimed, bestselling author of News of the World and Enemy Women, returns to Texas in this atmospheric story. Set at the end of the Civil War, Simon the Fiddler chronicles the life of an itinerant fiddle player, a ragtag band of musicians with whom he travels trying to make a living, and the charming young Irish lass who steals his heart. Told in Jile's trademark spare yet lilting style, the book is a captivating, bittersweet tale of the chances a devoted man will take and the lengths he will go to fulfill his heart's yearning.
