Abstract:
When journalist Steve Lopez sees Nathaniel Ayers playing his heart out on a two-string violin on Los Angeles' skid row, he finds it impossible to walk away. More than thirty years ago, Ayers was a promising classical bass student at Juilliard--ambitious, charming, and also one of the few African-Americans--until he gradually lost his ability to function, overcome by schizophrenia. Over time, the two men form a bond and Lopez imagines that he might be able to change Ayers's life. The soloist is a beautifully told story of devotion in the face of seemingly unbeatable challenges.
