By Andy Summers

Musician, composer, photographer, guitarist and now author Andy Summers has written short stories ever since he became a member of The Police, and they prove to be as smart, witty and unexpected as his music and photography. Containing 45 short tales, Fretted and Moaning reveals a cast of characters drawn from the world of music, chief among them guitarists. Every tale has at its heart music or a guitar and a person whose inner qualities are revealed in uncanny, funny and unexpected ways.
