Substantive and literary. A hearty blend of plot, characterization and humor; like a Pacific Northwest Seafood Stew on a rainy late February evening.
Richard Wiley, you craft misery that loves my company. Great work.
Silly, absurd, and supremely entertaining, with a seemingly transcendental moment capping it off. Among many smart lines, possibly my favorite was, "It was like watching two thumbs doing battle over a pair of folded hands." Brisk reading indeed.
