‘When he opened his eyes, the room was full of chaotic visions’

A picture containing text, person Description automatically generated

When TJ—a musical prodigy—witnesses a traumatic event as a child, his senses are overrun with intense hallucinations. Over the years, his visions increase in frequency and intensity, but he hides them from those he is closest to, including his best friend and musical partner, Lila, who challenges TJ to reject formulaic creation in order to create something beautiful and unique. But when Lila signs a record deal, TJ feels left behind and alone with his art and his visions.

That’s when TJ meets an artist named Muna. In his eyes and visions, Muna is made of smoke, and as this magical woman helps him learn how to manage his visions and how to translate what he sees and hears into music and lyrics, she begins to disappear. His journey into Muna’s past is a journey to discover where inspiration originates and what happens to an artist when that inspiration is gone.

Barnes and Noble: The Smoke in His Eyes by Shane Wilson

Skillfully written with a fine sense of cadence, this is an impressive book by an author of authority – a successful entry into the world of magical realism attuned to music!”
