The unhappy life of "Beautiful Inez"by Greta Cunningham, Minnesota Public Radio
The main character in Minnesota author Bart Schneider's new novel, "Beautiful Inez," seems to have it all. She's a violinist with the San Francisco Symphony in the 1960s. Inez has a flourishing career, two children and a powerful husband. Yet she's unhappy. Schneider told MPR's Greta Cunningham Inez uses music and relationships to try to grasp happiness. He reads from the book March 10 at the Bound to Be Read Bookstore in St. Paul.
