NEW YORK (AP) — Mitch Albom's next novel will have strings attached.
Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, announced Wednesday that Albom's "The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto" will come out Nov. 10. The title character is a world-famous guitar player whose life takes readers through a mini-history of modern music, from Duke Ellington and Hank Williams to Carole King and KISS.
Harper is calling the book a "'Forrest Gump'-like romp."
Albom is known for such best-sellers as the novel "The First Phone Call from Heaven" and the memoir "Tuesdays With Morrie."
