Summary
"There are millions of stories in the city--some magical, some tragic, others terror-filled or triumphant. Jonah Kirk's story is all of those things as he draws readers into his life in the city as a young boy, introducing his indomitable grandfather, also a "piano man;" his single mother, a struggling singer; and the heroes, villains, and everyday saints and sinners who make up the fabric of the metropolis in which they live--and who will change the course of Jonah's life forever. Welcome to The City, a place of evergreen dreams where enchantment and malice entwine, where courage and honor are found in the most unexpected corners and the way forward lies buried deep inside the heart"--
Summary
There are millions of stories in the city-some magical, some tragic, others terror-filled or triumphant.

Welcome to The City, a place where enchantment and malice entwine, where courage and honour are found in the most unexpected corners, and the way forward lies buried deep inside the heart.
