Review quote

?This Grace Jones lookalike with a degree in French is a splendid creation? Sunday Telegraph ?Jazz addicts have a treat in store with Rhode Island Red, a book so filled with affection for the form that Charlie Parker seems almost to be another character? It is refreshing to find a heroine who has both a rock-solid moral center and a sense of humor? Donna Leon ?Rhode Island Red is elegiac and musical - especially if you prefer bebop to hip-hop. Nan is a wonderful character: a dreamer, head in the clouds, feet on the ceiling. Charlotte Carter has managed to be funky and dreamy at the same time? Liza Cody
