The hero of this sensational first novel is an alto-sax virtuoso trying to evolve a personal style out of Coltrane and Rollins. He also happens to be a walking, talking, Blake- and Shakespeare-quoting bear whose musical, spiritual, and romantic adventures add up to perhaps the best novel, ursine or human, ever written about jazz.

From Our Editors

Veteran jazz journalist Rafi Zabor serves up a wildly imaginative novel about a jazz loving bear in The Bear Comes Home. Smartly written, this award-winning fable follows an extraordinary bear as he develops his skills as an improvisational jazz musician and becomes the toast of the town. By exploring the bear's triumphs and tribulations in music and love, Zabor crafts a mesmerizing novel of an artist's coming-of-age.
