When staid Patrick Keane meets his roommate at a New England boarding-school, a strange, enduring friendship of extremes is forged.
For Will Savage, privileged white son of the Mississippi Delta, has embraced black soul music and adopted its raw, searing anthems as his own.
Spanning three decades from the turbulent sixties to the nineties, The Last of the Savages is a profound exploration of interracial love, music, family, honour and friendship.
