It all starts with a young girl playing her ukulele in a dingy folk club. There is something different about the song she sings – a song called ‘Life is Beautiful.’
It breaks hearts. It makes money. It might even change the world.
But no story of beauty or success in our cruel modern world can be entirely innocent.
Young Girl with a Ukulele is a dark and clever story of music and fame – and the sinister forces which can lie behind them.
Young Girl with a Ukulele is an unusual little story of one man’s (and indeed the world’s) obsession with a young musician.
The “young girl” in question is Sali – an elusive one hit wonder. In a media saturated society the lure of something original and intangible gets the world gripped. In particular, a fellow musician tries to know more but hits roadblocks along the way.
Young Girl with a Ukulele wasn’t the most interesting short story I have read but I did find the intensity with which Sali captured the world to be quite compelling.
Young Girl with a Ukulele by Terence Blacker is available now.
