Crepuscule W/Nellie

About the Book

Joe Milazzo’s debut novel Crepuscule W/ Nellie explores, via imagined as well as reimagined circumstances and incidents, the relationships between jazz pianist and composer Thelonious Monk, his wife Nellie, and his patron and confidante, the Baroness Pannonica De Koenigswarter. A work of speculative historical fiction, Crepuscule W/ Nellie does not attempt historical accuracy. Neither is it an ekphrastic experiment meant to mimic Monk’s brilliance, with his signature dissonant harmonies and angular melodic twists. Instead, much like Monk’s composing, Crepuscule W/ Nellie creates a whole new architecture in which to tell its otherwise untold story. (Crepuscule W/ Nellie is the first volume in the #RECURRENT novels series, edited by Janice Lee)
