A Novel


By Justin Tussing (Portland ME) 

Vexation Lullaby is a major literary stunner and pure raw pleasure from start to finish.”—Lily King, author of Euphoria

This is a lively, moving story by an author who clearly understands what it means to deeply love music." —Carol Schneck Varner, Bookseller, Schuler Books and Music

She jumps bail.
