The Tightrope Walker
The Tightrope Walker: A Novel | Dorothy Gilman
5 posts | 7 read | 1 to read
"A superb book." THE HOUSTON CHRONICLE When quiet, shy Amelia Jones reads a desperate message that has fallen out of a barrel organ in the antique shop she just bought, she can't forget the words, "They're going to kill me soon..." Armed only with the woman's first name and the note written years before, Amelia begins a journey into the past, a search that takes her from the protective cocoon she's wrapped herself in to a precarious world where nothing is the way it seems, where fear is second nature, and dark secrets just might uncover murder--her own....

I discovered Rachael Yamagata with "Be Be My Love" in college. She did a residency at Johnny Brenda's in Philadelphia, and I've been following her since. I've seen her about 10 times live. The linked video stars Allison freakin' Janney! Enjoy!

TieDyeDude The art is an original drawing that Candice Martello (aka Hemming) did before the show and sold at the merch table. My best friend bought it for me. Hemming is very good as well, though she only has one album; she won a VH1 reality show, but became a little jaded with the music business dealing with the recording contract from that show (bonus video: https://youtu.be/pd-H4rfsrn8) 3mo
youneverarrived Ah I love Rachel Yamagata. I went to London for the first time when I was 16 to see her live - my first proper gig. Great memories 😁 3mo
TieDyeDude @youneverarrived Yay! That's cool. That's not exactly a short trip, is it? 3mo
youneverarrived I live in the north of the UK so it wasn‘t too far 🥰 3mo

Definitely enough to convince me to try more of Gilman's work. It's a bit "little did I know, but..." at times, but mostly fun.

Blueberry I think I have read everything she has ever written ❤ 3y

Somebody in the Legendary Book Club of Habitica guild on Habitica chose this as one of their favourite books. I'm enjoying it so far -- I've been meaning to try Gilman's work for so long. I rather like the protagonist; a little bit naive and just not used to being her own person, but with a surprising amount of spine.

I've lost track of how many times I've seen Rachael Yamagata in concert (probably nearing 15). She always has the best openers, too. Last night Zach Djanikian and stellar local Philly artist Hemming played, and my friend bought me this original art, which Hemming drew. Great night!

MicheleinPhilly 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼This is so great! I couldn‘t bring myself to trek out to Ardmore in the rain last night. 😕 6y

Went to two AWESOME bookstores today! Part 1 of 3 of my book haul today 😳 The pile here is from the Seattle Mystery Bookshop. They were so full of suggestions, it was so fun. Would never have picked some of these titles without their help. I can't wait to get to them!
