A writer of telling, minute detail with global vision, Peter Meinke reveals the intricacy of human relationships, the importance of individualism, and the power of place and culture in this new collection of stories. Masterfully-crafted dialogue, slight shifts in point-of-view, descriptive precision and imagination, and dramatic tension drive each story deeply into the human psyche. The settings range from old England to contemporary Paris and Warsaw, and across the United States. The featured characters—whether on tennis courts, in restaurants, or in their own beloved homes—always make surprising choices as they cope with love, lust, ambition, regret, youth, and old age.

In The Piano Tuner, Peter Meinke writes of the foreignness that awaits us when we go abroad and when we answer . The Piano Tuner exhibits strong and consistent writing throughout. Meinke's poetic skill is evident in his ability to jar a reader with a single line.

In The Piano Tuner, Peter Meinke writes of the foreignness that awaits us when we go abroad and when we answer our own front door to admit a stranger. He provides insight at arm's length, asking not necessarily that the reader care about the characters yet almost forcing him to understand them. Washington Post Book World).

Peter Meinke is a treasure. From his peotry to his stories, he is one of a kind for his generation. I teach writing classes, and these stories are a textbook for how to write well. I am so happy to have discovered him, and I urge all lovers of great writing to join me. Therese Tappouni, CEO of Isis Institute, [...]

"Unheard Music" is a beautiful book of stories by Peter Meinke. He writes with a love for his characters that is so transcendent, he makes them family for the short time they are in one's head.

Although Meinke is also known for his prose, he is foremost a poet. This makes his fiction lovely as an example of concision and beauty. His lyricism and ear for rhythm make him an absolute pleasure to read.

Highly recommended.
