Summary
Intermission is an evocative novel set during a pivotal time in music and culture in America, in particular the jazz scene of the early 1960s. It is based on a period in the life of the legendary jazz musician Bill Evans, who collaborated with bassist Scott LaFaro and Paul Evans on drums to become the Bill Evans Trio. Together they recorded two live albums before Le Faro was killed in a road accident and Evans, devastated by his death, sought seclusion. The novel explores the lives of four people deeply affected by the tragedy, each bringing a different dimension to this immensely moving portrait of a man haunted by grief, isolated from his family and searching for himself amongst the wreckage of the past before emerging to face the future.
