Ballerina & Puppet Man is a story of a young black man of the 1960's, trying to be successful at creating pop music in a racially divided society. The main character, Gary Harrison, attempts to live his dreams by any means necessary, much to the chagrin of his band mates. But somewhere along the line he discovers, amidst truth and tragedy, the real meaning of life and love, and the true meaning of success.  The 'puppet man' in him dissolves as his love for the ballerina deepens. The music speaks for itself in this fast and furious, graphically told, tale of sex, drugs and rock n' roll.

About the author (2010)

Bruce Edwin Lee was born and raised in the state of Maryland. His interest in poetry and music lead to an affinity for writing. "It was a dream of mine to write the great American novel," Bruce confides. "The songs contained within the text of this book actually helped to guide the direction the story. There will be a book sound track forthcoming, that will augment the setting of this 1960's roller coaster ride."
