£7.99   paperback  Pan Macmillan (Picador) (2011)

Trumpet by Jackie Kay This is the story of Joss Moody, a female jazz trumpet player who disguises herself as a man, and leads a complete life in her male guise - even marrying a woman and fostering a child.
It's this child - Moody's son - who relates the her story after she has died, finally coming to terms with the fact that his 'father' led a secret life.
Kay proves herself to be a skillful writer with this beautiful and compassionate first novel, which won the 1998 Guardian Fiction Prize.
