The Note

Pete Townshend had posted the first installment of his serialized novella, The Boy Who Heard Music. It's hard to judge any piece based solely on the prologue, but I like what I've seen so far. At the very least it makes me want to keep reading. The story seems very much in the style of the Lifehouse BBC radio play as well as Pete's Pyschoderelict album (which was in many ways a radio play as well) and in many ways seems to be a sequel of sorts to Pyschoderelict.

UPDATE: All the chapters and many of the comments from Pete Townshend's The Boy Who Heard Music blog have been removed from the blogspot site and archived at his main website:
