Min Kym’s violin was stolen from her while she ate a sandwich at London’s Euston Station in November 2010.
Three years later, it was recovered by police and returned to her, amid great joy.
‘All my life my Stradivarius had been waiting for me, as I had been waiting for her . . .’ writes Min, in a memoir, Lost, to be published next month by Penguin.
But before 2013 was out, she sold the violin for £2.25 million in an online auction.
Guess we’ll have to read the book to find out why.
There’s an accompanying record release from Warner.
