“Talent is a piece of God’s shadow, and under that shadow, human stories intersect.” A Spanish war orphan born in a burning church and raised by a blind guitar teacher, Frankie Presto was gifted with extraordinary musical abilities that shape not only his life but the lives of those around him. At nine years old, Frankie meets the love of his life, Aurora; that same day, civil war tears apart his home and he is sent to America, smuggled in the bottom of a boat with only guitar and six strings imbued with the power to change lives. Relying on music to survive, Frankie’s talent weaves him through the musical landscape of the twentieth century, from Detroit’s jazz scene and the Grand Ole Opry, to Elvis mania and Woodstock—all the while searching for Aurora. As his fame grows, Frankie finds love, friendship, and celebrity. Even so, his gift becomes his burden, driving a wedge between him and his beloved Aurora—now his wife. Overwhelmed by life, loss, and the power of his strings, Frankie disappears for years, only to reemerge in a spectacular and mysterious farewell. With its Forrest Gump–like journey through the music world, The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto is a classic in the making. “Everyone joins a band in this life,” Albom observes, “only some of them play music.”

Mitch Albom

Semua manusia berbakat musik. Jika tidak, mengapa Tuhan memberimu jantung yang berdenyut? Melalui kecintaannya pada musik, Mitch Albom menyusun novel indah tentang pengaruh bakat dalam mengubah hidup manusia. Inilah kisah epik tentang Frankie Presto––gitaris paling hebat yang pernah ada––dan enam kehidupan yang diubah melalui enam dawai biru gitarnya. Frankie lahir di gereja yang terbakar, bayi yatim-piatu yang dididik oleh seorang guru musik di kota kecil di Spanyol. Perang menghancurkan hidupnya, dan pada usia sembilan tahun dia diselundupkan ke Amerika di dalam perahu. Harta Frankie satu-satunya adalah gitar tua dan enam dawai berharga. Frankie merambahi khasanah musik tahun 1940, 1950, dan 1960-an dengan bakatnya yang luar biasa sebagai gitaris dan penyanyi yang memengaruhi bintang-bintang pada zaman itu, (Duke Ellington, Hank Williams, Elvis Presley), sampai akhirnya dia pun menjadi bintang tenar. Namun bakat luar biasa ini juga menjadi beban ketika Frankie menyadari petikan gitarnya, musiknya, dapat memengaruhi kehidupan orang-orang lain. Pada puncak ketenarannya, dia membuat satu kesalahan, dan merasa bersalah. Dia menghilang. Legendanya berkembang. Berpuluh tahun kemudian, setelah hatinya pulih, dia muncul kembali untuk mengubah satu kehidupan terakhir. Dalam buku ini, Musik menjadi sang Narator, dan melalui tutur katanya kita diajak melongok ke dalam banyak kehidupan yang diubah oleh sang gitaris yang dawai-dawainya sanggup menyentuh jiwa musik di dalam diri kita semua.
