Told through a searingly honest narrative, James Rhodes recalls the physical and sexual abuse he suffered as a child, his ensuing struggle with drugs and alcohol and the nervous breakdown that led him to spending months in a locked ward. But there is a bright, broad beam of light piercing through the darkness: James' passion for classical music - a passion that enabled him to get through his tumultuous upbringing, to resign from his mind-numbing job and to become a renowned concert pianist, as this memoir reveals.
