Fremantle Art Centre Press, 2003. First edition. A fine, unmarked copy.
Frank Harmon - poet, refugee from a failed marriage, loner - is approaching mid-life a little battered, opting for the quiet rhythms of a hermetic life on the south coast. One night a phone call from a woman claiming to be his unknown sister awakens the ghosts of his past and opens doors he thought he had abandoned with the years. A fault line is unveiled which threatens to run backwards through everything he knows, and forwards into the fragility of a new future. Through a tangle of treacherous family secrets, from London's jazz clubs in the fifties to contemporary coastal life, Old Jazz is a surprising love story.
