Lily I just finished reading "the song is you" and I really loved it. During the last 15 pages I had this desperate need to listen to "I cover the waterfront" because I had never heard it before. I found myself searching itunes for a live copy, just hoping to hear Julian's father on the beginning of the track.

It's been awhile since I've read a book I enjoyed this much. Thank you so much.

Thanks, Tom - that's very gratifying, to say the least.
