Amongst the anger and fear and uncertainty in 1969 Detroit, this coming of age story is told via journal entries accompanied by a well known soundtrack. Author Michael Zadoorian's third novel was loosely inspired by, of all things, a movie. “It's not a super literary thing to say that your book was inspired a little bit by a movie, but I love Almost Famous — the Cameron Crowe film — which is very much the same era as this book,” Zadoorian said in a Michigan Radio interview. A must-read for any Detroit native or any audophile in general, Beautiful Music tells the every day tale of Danny Yzemski, a Detroit youth navigating the times marked with family grief, a newly integrated world, and the aftermath of the 1967 riots. Turn the page, and dive deep into Beautiful Music.
