A lovely email to start the day from an old neighbour, David Carlick.
I finished the book.
It was fabulous, and I am going to read it again.
The characters became my friends.
(Of course, I have real problems remembering names, so I had to work a bit to keep up, which is always the case when the story is complex, and I like that.)
The story was fascinating, and the way you unfolded was fascinating to me as well.
(Trying to figure out who the guitar player was that our hero was trying to sign.)
The coming-of-age in the period of post WWII/emergence of the British Invasion was so well done.
Congratulations on a remarkable achievement.
