I just finished up another book...and it's fiction! If you haven't noticed I just don't read a lot of fiction. But here it is;

The Soloist by Mark Salzman 284 pages

It's about a prodigy who plays the cello as a child but once he grows up and his cello teacher dies his amazing talent diminishes because he can't play perfectly, with perfect intonation, perfect clarity etc. He ends up beginning to teach a young Chinese boy while also being put on a jury for a murder trial. So, it's interesting getting to know this guy through this interactions with the boy and his being on a jury. And I guess there's a movie out now based on the book so we'll see how they do the film
