From the Publisher
The first novel by one of Canada's most well-loved singer-songwriters. A story that moves from a bakery on the Lido in Venice, to a coffeehouse in Nelson, BC in the golden days of the early 70's, to current-day Cambodia - a powerful new work from one of Canada's great narrative voices. In reviewing his latest CD, Penguin Eggs magazine called David Essig "one of our most cherished touchstones for the Canadian way of life." Dancing Hand is further proof of this high praise.
