That is the title of the novel by Selden Edwards. USA Today describes the book as:
“It imagines Wheeler Burden, a 47-year-old classically educated American rock star who's suddenly transported by mysterious means from the San Francisco of 1988 to the Vienna of 1897.
The article notes that the author is a retired English teacher, and Pulitzer winning novelist Richard Ford has said:
“Selden Edwards’s impressive debut novel is richly inventive, woven tightly with incident, and fully engaging. It is also superbly humane and readable.”
Likewise, Pat Conroy has stated: “Selden Edwards’s The Little Book is a wonderful novel and I think it has a chance to become a famous one. I’ve never read a novel like it. And I felt like my life was changing forever as I savored its many delights and mysteries.”
