I Am A Piano

ByUlla Morris-Carter

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This is the ‘moving’ memoir of an upright piano, made in 1925 in Darmstadt, Germany by an apprentice of Herr Heinrich Steinweg, aka Mr. Henry Steinway. After its trials and tribulations, from Kristallnacht (the night of broken glass) to bombardments of its birthplace, it finally landed in the 1960s in the family of an American foreign correspondent and his German wife. The piano recounts its multiple trans-continental moves from Bonn to Beirut to Athens to America and the turbulent times and journeys of the family up to its current peaceful resting place in Los Altos Hills, California. With its fussy, ‘bourgeois’ pride and limited perspective, this easily disgruntled instrument with sensitive strings concludes, “I am a survivor.” 6x9 PerfectBound, Cream Pages
