An orphan of a Spanish war, the only thing left for Frankie to follow is his music. With his knowledge and 6 precious guitar strings bestowed unto him by his blind guitar teacher, Frankie wanders through the world, touching people with his music. Studying with the greatest stars in the history of music, Frankie quickly rises to fame. With the power to affect others’ lives, the gift quickly becomes a burden, and Frankie struggles with his new identity. The strains of his tumultuous life and unique abilities eventually consume him, and Frankie disappears. After his long hiatus, Frankie reemerges onto the stage with an eerily unforgettable valediction that captures the world’s heart.

Narrated by the voice of Music, the early events of what made Frankie Presto and the lives that he affected tie together exquisitely in a symphony of lyrical prose.
