Resurrection Blues

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Mike Tanner (CA)

The tale of a musician who leaves school for a life on the road. Flynn Robinson is eighteen years old and has just made the most important decision of his life. Excited by an offer to play guitar in a top club band, he’s decided to drop out of his last year of high school. Naturally, his parents aren’t too thrilled. Neither is his girlfriend, Julianne. But Flynn is driven by his passion for music, and his fear of ending up bored and boring -- a regular guy in a suit and tie. His hero is his uncle and namesake, Ray Flynn, a musician who has defied convention his whole life. Flynn can’t bring himself to tell Julianne they’re finished. He resents anyone giving him advice, and finds that he’s really burned when the bandleader won’t let him play his original tunes. When Flynn is offered a hot guitar, he is confronted by the first of his moral dilemmas. Flynn
is getting his first look at the world of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. But a time for deep reflection arrives when Flynn discovers that his idol, Ray, isn’t the man he imagined. Tanner reaches into his own experience as a musician to create the authentic universe of a club band. In this novel, written with the adrenaline rush of a live performance, we meet a compelling cast of characters.
