Klezmer tells a wild tale of love, friendship, survival, and the joy of making music in pre-World War II Eastern Europe.Noah is perfectly content as the leader of a traveling klezmer band, until his bandmates are brutally murdered by rival musicians.He sets out for Odessa alone, but is joined by Chava, a beautiful girl with a voice like an angel.Meanwhile, Yaacov is expelled from his yeshiva for stealing; he too makes his way to Odessa along with Vincenzo, a violinist, and Tshokola, a gypsy entertainer.When these five misfits finally come together, they must set aside their differences and learn to work together (and rock a crowd) through their music.Tragic, humorous, violent, and tender, Klezmer is a rhapsody in watercolor, captivating readers from the first note to the grand finale.
