The Ensemble by Aja GabelIt’s hard to imagine that music can have a texture, a taste—but in Aja Gabel’s debut novel The Ensemble, the particulars of performance and song infuse every aspect of the world she creates. This is the story of four friends in a string quartet who must balance their passion for music with their private lives and ambition. Gabel’s addictive prose incandesces on the page, and fans of The Interestings will find much to love here.
