When the song is over, what remains? Impossible Music is a novel about rediscovering yourself when everything you once took for granted is gone.
Music is Simon’s life – which is why he is devastated when a ministroke obliterates his hearing. He resists attempts to help him adjust to his new state, refusing to be counselled, refusing to learn sign language, refusing to have anything to do with Deaf culture. Refusing, that is, until he meets G, a tough-as-nails girl dealing with her own newly experienced hearing loss.
Local author Sean Williams was born in the dry, flat lands of South Australia, where he still lives with his wife and family. He is the author of over 40 novels and 120 published short stories, a Writers SA member, former board member, and workshop leader.
