“The poetic sound of the name “MILES”, the way he looked, his lifestyle, his trademark rasp and his marriage of quality and commericality have entered the folklore. His combination of musical, visual, sexual, and financial chops is unequaled. The ghost of MILES hovers.”
— Mike Zwerin

41 chapters. Time to start reading….
