Faith and the Return of the Banjo is a memoir that reads like an odyssey. Hjordis Olson traces her past in 1970s Madison through childhood emotional abuse to religious madness. She becomes the victim of several powerful predators along the way. Her journey is harrowing. She navigates a treacherous maze as she follows her yearning for true love. She writes with candor, humor, and intense anger. The story really moves. The characters come to life; her high school friends, the brothers Pierre and Job, The Monk, The Charmer, and Faith are vividly drawn. Do you recognize them? Hjordis takes the shards of her shattered psyche and builds a kaleidoscope. The arts saved her. But ultimately, this is a romantic story.
