Red Hook RoadHe turned to Jane. "Your grand-niece appears to possess absolute pitch. Perfect pitch.".

"What does that mean?"

"It means, essentially, that if she hears a note she can name it. And vice versa. She can reproduce a note without a reference. Like she did just now. Especially interesting is her abililty to recognize the various notes within a chord. I find it curious, because most children who do not receive early musical training lose their capacity for absolute pitch." -- p 146 (ARC) Red Hook Road by Ayelet Waldman (July 2010)

What is your TT, today?

Nice

I like the cover of this book, very whimsical. And the teaser is great. I have two teasers this week at The Crowded Leaf.

I like Ayelet Waldman's

I like Ayelet Waldman's stuff. She does such a range of things. This one intrigues me since I have a background in music. I'll have to look it up.

My teaser is here.

I wish I had perfect pitch.
