Description
The Piano Girl journey continues. Waltz of the Asparagus People follows the hero of Piano Girl, Robin Meloy Goldsby, and her family to Europe, recounting their adventures and frustrations as they learn a new language, adapt to a new culture, and find new friends.

This is big-hearted, funny, truly eye-opening memoir.” Publishers Weekly Starred Review of Piano Girl
