Publisher's Summary

Pentatonic, written and read by Jonathan Coe, is a daring and original story about family and memory, originally inspired by the accompanying music from Danny Manners.
When a family celebrates the prize-giving day at their daughter’s secondary school, thoughts turn to their own childhoods. The father remembers his living room piano recital, recorded on a well-worn cassette tape. The mother remembers her own father’s war tragedy. As the father searches for the physical reminder of his past and the mother longs to forget her own, they confront the breakdown of their marriage in the present.
In Pentatonic, Jonathan Coe movingly explores the memories that unite us and the experiences that drive us apart.
Text by Jonathan Coe. Music by Danny Manners. Produced by Ken Brake at Regal Lane Studios.
