Présentation de l'éditeur
Set among the Malibu mansions and Hollywood rock clubs of California’s southland, Never Break the Chain finds Tim Green’s grief over the loss of his father spinning into an obsessive quest to track down the wayward mother who deserted him almost three decades before. It’s a journey that, like Believe in Me before it, sends Green venturing deep into the heart of the rock and roll jungle.
Opening a few months after the end of Believe in Me, Never Break the Chain lands Green in the oceanfront Malibu compound of British guitarist Blake Saunders, who’s just hired him to pen an authorized biography of his floundering, formerly-huge arena rock band. Even as the highly combustible Saunders’ son Mal—recently installed as the band’s new lead singer—and daughter Jane offer him distorted reflections of himself, Green’s efforts to retrace his mother’s steps through LA’s rock and roll underworld propel him toward a cathartic confrontation. The revelations to come challenge every answer he once thought he possessed to the most fundamental question of all: who is Tim Green?
Equal parts family drama, literate thriller, and peek behind the curtain of an aging rock band, Never Break the Chain is ultimately a story about families—the ones we’re born into, and the ones we create.
Praise for Never Break the Chain:
“Rock writer Jason Warburg ties up some loose ends with his latest Tim Green novel, Never Break the Chain. His charming protagonist is still threading the road to self-knowledge by poetically and amusingly examining the lives of others in this tale of excess and success. Best of all, a turn in the story resolves the mystery of who Tim Green really is. It’s the magic of music that takes us there, along with Warburg’s very entertaining style.”
-- Viola Weinberg, Poet Laureate emerita of Sacramento & former KZAP FM News Director
“A beautiful book… Never Break the Chain is a novel about family life and the ties that bind people together. It is not easy to write about music and the life of musicians in a convincing way, but Jason Warburg never misses a beat. Warburg understands how music can play a major part in the staging posts of people’s lives.”
-- Greg Spawton, co-founder & songwriter, Big Big Train

Our narrator, Tim, has been hired to write a biography of Empire, a once-mighty prog band that has survived for several decades. A musical shift in search of commercial success worked for a while, but now they're reduced to repackaging greatest hits collections. While I found the inner workings of Empire fascinating, the book is ultimately about families. Metaphorical and literal families struggle to survive, as Tim searches for answers to his own family's mysteries. That search that leads him in directions he never expected to go and to answers we are eager for him to find, even if we're reluctant for the book to end.
