"Music For a Broken Piano is a trip to the dark side of the liberal imagination. It is a book about the longing for community, about the real world's refusal to be tempted by idealizations, about the destructiveness of certain forms of fantasy. The writing is wonderful, the characters compelling."
—Larry McMurtry
