"Goldsby has a wicked sense of humor and a keen eye for the absurd." Publishers Weekly Starred Review

Background Information

"Goldsby has a wicked sense of humor and a keen eye for the absurd."
Publishers Weekly Starred ReviewRobin Meloy

Goldsby is the author of RHYTHM: A Novel, and Piano Girl: A Memoir. Her thirty-year career as a musician has taken her from roadside dives to New York City’s poshest venues, exclusive resorts, and on to the European castles where she now performs. Robin has three solo piano recordings to her name: Twilight, Somewhere in Time, and Songs from the Castle, and has appeared on NPR’s All Things Considered and Piano Jazz with Marian McPartland. Robin is a Steinway Artist. She currently lives in Cologne, Germany with her husband—jazz bassist John Goldsby—and their two children.

“Rhythm conveys the magic of sound plus the transformative power of music,
and the words—like a well-played melody—ring true.”
Peter Erskine, drummer and author of Time Awareness for All Musicians

“Vivid and heart warming, Rhythm explores the joyous addiction musicians
have to their craft. Rhythm is a hit!”
John Riley, drummer

Goldsby’s first novel (after her 2005 memoir Piano Girl), spans 15 years in
the life of her gritty, resilient protagonist and is told with lyrical prose and
deft characterization. Well-written, sympathetically earnest fiction.
Kirkus Discoveries

“Goldsby, who marries the pathos of her plot line with the whimsy
and near-magical realism of her characters, deserves comparison
with John Irving, a modern master.”
Marion Winik, NPR commentator and author of First Comes Love

Piano Girl: A Memoir
This is the story of one woman's accidental career as a cocktail lounge piano player. Connecting the people she has met with the places she has played and the pianos she has known, Robin Meloy Goldsby discovers the human side, for better or worse, of her audiences - mobsters and moguls, the down-and-out, the downright scary, and ordinary people dealing with life in extraordinary ways.

Meet teenage drummer Jane Bowman. She’s fifteen, funny, and wounded by the loss of her famous percussionist mother. Robin Meloy Goldsby’s touching and humorous coming-of-age musical odyssey invites us to tap our toes in time to Jane’s powerful music—cheering her on as she mends her shattered heart, finds her groove, and discovers the tragic beauty of human resilience.
