A baby is born prematurely, and her mother sits at the beside willing her to live. Prodigy is an utterly unforgettable novella which traces the course of young Maya's life as a brilliant child--loved and loving--and musical progidy.

Nancy Huston, whose The Mark of the Angel was superbly reviewed and shortlisted for the Giller Prize, once again presents us with a flawlessly executed and moving tale, which explores the boundaries between dream and madness, love and pain, art and reality.
