In 2005, Nisha Coleman traveled to France to be with who she hoped was the love of her life. Instead, she stayed there years, playing her violin, and finding a new sense of passion for music and her own independence. A different kind of love story, Coleman allows the reader a rare glimpse into the world of a street violinist in Paris. Her journey features a mosaic of gypsies, homeless people, other buskers and random strangers—a tale that transforms from initial hardship to ultimate triumph. This is the moving story of a young woman who went to Paris for love and found her life.
“In this beautiful coming-of-age memoir, Nisha Coleman seeks more than just a living playing violin in the streets of Paris. She’s after life itself in all its brilliant tastes, sound and colours. Despite the constant pressing need for food and shelter, what Coleman unexpectedly finds is “joy on a high wire,” and self-knowledge deep enough to lead beyond the self…to love” -- Claire Holden Rothman
Nisha Coleman is a writer, storyteller, translator and musician based in Montreal. Busker: Stories from the Streets of Paris, is her first book.
