Albuquerque Sings the Blues

James Scott Lafon

This fictional novel, set in Albuquerque, follows its characters in a modern world that has become more convoluted, more conflicted, more technological - yet even more emotionally unstable. Albuquerque has sights for the tourist to enjoy - the International Balloon Festival each October," Old Town," the Sandia Tramway, hot red and green chili, sunshine 300 days a year, a true multicultural milieu, and a merging of old and new worlds. Albuquerque is still, however, portrayed as a " Breaking Bad" city.

Albuquerque, as our storyteller likes to say, " is icing on a cake that has already fallen." He reminds us that whether we are cavemen or modern men, " The blues keep singing in our hearts and minds."

Our ordinary lives these days, we slowly understand, are hard to find, harder to keep, and ever so precious.
