"Piano Girl" is the story of a young woman's accidental career as a cocktail lounge piano player, and the adventures and encounters that follow. Sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, this entertaining memoir provides a glimpse into the comedies, tragedies, and mundane miracles witnessed from the business side of the eighty-eights. Robin Goldsby, a pianist in lounges around the world, tells her musical story by connecting the people she has met with places she has played and pianos she has known. Her story provides insights into the art and craft of piano playing, as well as encouraging lessons in life as she finds her own way to pursue her dreams on an unlikely path. Along the way, she finds the human side, for better and for worse, in her audiences: the rich and famous, the down and out, and the everyday people who inhabit the corners of her world. In "Piano Girl", anything can happen as people wander through her real-time soundtrack to life.
