Yes, it is a very interesting autobiography, by Michael Soward, who was bought up in Arkansas with his younger brother and lived with their strict grandmother after being abandoned by their father. The family attend church regularly, and Michael discovered at a young age, he had a gift for playing the organ and it is the beginning of a lifelong love of music. In 1969, aged 18 he escaped to the big city and his life changes forever...
Which scene was your favorite?
The whole story is very interesting and I couldn't pinpoint a favourite bit. I have to say however that throughout, this book runs a vein of the author’s deep religious belief and his faith in God. It is the importance of his church and love of music, which has sustained him through times of deep despair.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
From Rags to Jazz!
Any additional comments?
The story, which follows, is of one man’s journey, his marriage, fatherhood, hopes, dreams and foibles’. It is frank and honest, brutally so sometimes. He openly talks about his relationship with his father, the driving forces in his life and the leaps of faith, which have made him into the man he is today.I have always loved listening to memoirs, catching a glimpse into peoples’ lives and discovering the experiences, which have made them the person they are today. This is a very honestly written book, interesting and thought provoking, the journey of a young boy from the Deep South who ends up a father and grandfather living in New York, and all the bits in-between.
