A Guitar with Too Many Strings: Spotlight with Excerpt


 



A Guitar With Too Many Strings

by John Mellor

 

 

BLURB:

 

"Madness dances with brilliance" - a wild rock singer, a lonely white dolphin and other unworldly misfits emerge from their strange stories to challenge a young boy as to why. A gaunt tree leans wearily over them, like a guitar with too many strings. And the Angel leans on her gate, watching. - "Never seen anything quite like this"; "A unique & wonderful manuscript".

"This is not a normal book with a normal story..."

 
It is the story of a rock singer and the unearthly harmonies plucked from a strange 13-string guitar; and of a bumptious honeybee encountering a strange little man on a planet that isn't there; and a tired, cynical old philosopher conducting a strange debate with a stone in the woods.

 
It is the story of a shipwrecked sailor, whose pet egg hatches into a strange seagull; and a worn-out, unworldly old lady dying in a strange land where no-one dreams; and a sad, downtrodden gardener tending a Wise Woman's strange, disquieting weed.

 

It is the story of a lonely white dolphin, and a tree - curiously shaped like a guitar with too many strings.
 

And of a young boy who discovers - with a little help from an Angel - The Seven Gifts - that came to Earth. 



"A most unusual and beautiful story" 

"This is a book to make you think"
