Music and war, war and musicthese are the twin motifs around which Bradford Morrow, recipient of the Academy Award in Fiction from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, has composed his magnum opus,The Prague Sonata, a novel more than a dozen years in the making.

In the early days of the new millennium, pages of a worn and weathered original sonata manuscriptthe gift of a Czech immigrant living out her final days in Queenscome into the hands of Meta Taverner, a young musicologist whose concert piano career was cut short by an injury. To Metas eye, it appears to be an authentic eighteenth-century work; to her discerning ear, the music rendered there is commanding, hauntingly beautiful, clearly the undiscovered composition of a master. But there is no indication of who the composer might be. The gift comes with the request that Meta attempt to find the manuscripts true ownera Prague friend the old woman has not heard from since the Second World War forced them apartand to make the three-part sonata whole again. Leaving New York behind for the land of DvoY?k and Kafka, Meta sets out on an unforgettable search to locate the remaining movements of the sonata and uncover a story that has influenced the course of many lives, even as it becomes clear that she isnt the only one after the musics secrets.

Magisterially evoking decades of Pragues tragic and triumphant history, from the First World War through the soaring days of the Velvet Revolution, and moving from postwar London to the heartland of immigrant America,The Prague Sonatais both epic and intimate, evoking the ways in which individual notes of love and sacrifice become part of the celebratory symphony of life.From the critically acclaimed author Bradford Morrow, a literary quest novel that travels from Nazi-occupied Prague to turn-of-the-millennium New York as a young musicologist seeks to solve the mystery behind an eighteenth-century sonata manuscript
