PIANO LOVER: THE MOVIE
the third novel in a show biz trilogy
In New Orleans French Quarter during the 1950's, a young male cocktail pianist's life is complicated by four beautiful women; two young women from opposite poles of society who love him in their diverse ways, and two middle aged women who seek to control him for their own secret reasons. A colorful collection of entertainers and hedonistic fun lovers are seen against a historically accurate backdrop of New Orleans landmark nightclubs and eateries.
This is the third book in a show biz trilogy in which our talented entertainers go to Hollywood to create a screen adaptation of their successful Broadway musical. Their adventures bring them in contact with celebrities like Steve Allen, Noel Cowaard, Errol Flynn, Frank Sinatra, Anna Magnanni, Vitorio diSica, Dorothy Lamour, Ed Nelson, Hal Prince, Richmond Barthe, and others. Their travels take them from New Orleans to Hollywood, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Malibu, New York, Matzatlan, Jamaica, and beyond. If you love show music, show business adventures, Hollywood's down and dirty side, and sensuality, you've gotta love the hedonistic adventures of Piano Lover: The Movie..
William Karl Thomas was Lenny Bruce's only writing collaborator, so it's no surprise that Thomas' work walks on the wild side. His past includes being a cocktail pianist in 'the big easy' circa 1950's, and his memoir of his ten year collaboration with Bruce, Lenny Bruce: The Making of a Prophet, was described by The Manchester Guardian as "reads like a Bogart script." All his works include gays and interracial characters, and this trilogy, more than most novels, intimately explores the gray areas between the gay and heterosexual worlds.
