John Owens

If your life were at stake, what would you do to survive?

How do you continue in the face of inconceivable cruelty?

Can you reconcile a thirst for revenge with a plea for mercy?

Does love or art even matter?

These questions confront Nicholae, a gifted, irreverent Gypsy guitarist and the narrator of The Sixth String as he tells of his reckless, often bawdy adventures across Europe leading to his entrapment in the Nazi machine. A gripping tale of suspense, a moving love story and a unique look at the fate of more than half a million Roma during World War II, The Sixth String is also a meditation on evil and, above all, a celebration of the artistic spirit.
