Under The Visible Life by Kim Echlin

This is an excellent book about two very different women of mixed background/race: an Afghani- American raised in Karachi who moves to Montreal, and a Chinese-Canadian raised in Hamilton. This is a story about relationships, between friends and husbands and children but above all else, it is about the love of music. This is worthwhile reading just for the description of NY jazz in the 1970s.
