Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Erik Satie begins life with every possible advantage, but the dual blows of his mother's early death and his father's breakdown upend his childhood. Erik and his younger siblings, Louise and Conrad, are scattered. Later, as an ambitious young composer, Erik flings himself into the Parisian art scene, aiming for greatness but achieving only notoriety. Over the years, alienating those in his circle as often as he inspires them, he lashes out at friends and lovers. Louise and Conrad strive to maintain their faith in their brother's talent and hold fast the badly frayed threads of family.
