Regarded as the World's Greatest Xylophone virtuoso, Ian Finkel (www.ianfinkel.com) expands his creative reach by partnering with More4Many books as they publish three works of fiction. The partnership was celebrated on Tuesday, May 20 at the Davis Room at The Warwick Hotel (65 West 54 Street).

Finkel's off-beat sensibility and keen ability to craft wonderfully dark comedic tales are on full display in his novels; Three is the Charm, Sex Stories My Wife Told Me and Transmutation Blues.

Following the lives of three working girls, Three is the Charm is a powerful and brutal account of street life in 1950's New York City. Humorously told, Three is the Charm is a love story packed with graphic sex and violence.

Harvey and Janie are the perfect couple. They have been married for years in sweet simplicity, raised a family and are now enjoying retirement. Suddenly sweet Janie begins writing stories of the foulest nature sending Harvey down a dark road. PartThe Exorcist and Part 50 Shades of Grey, Finkel's Sex Stories My Wife Told Me is a delightfully deranged tale of meeting someone again for the first time.

Dissecting the garbage cans in the back alleys of life, Transmutation Blues is about the journey of change. Transmutation Blues is a collection of twisted, funny and quirky tales of change that depicts the most honest human conditions.
