More Information


_No Strings _is the bitter-sweet tale of Barbara, an American black model living in Paris. She meets and fails in love with a white American, David, a former Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist who has had a bad case of writer’s block ever since he came to live in France. She tries to restore his confidence in his writing ability, but the easy living he earns in Paris proves too much of a distraction. David must make a decision—but to what will he be true? Love, or his art? Or both? Songs include “The Sweetest Sounds”, “No Strings” and “Nobody Told Me.”
