Paul Love Chabon and alternative history. This one is on my list to read. Hope you have read "Telegaph Avenue." Great storytelling.


Cheryl I haven't read TELEGRAPH AVENUE, but I will now. Thanks for your recommendation.


Rebecca Huston I'll be honest, I got a kick out of this one.


Cheryl I loved the prose, and the descriptions of the characters were shot out of a canon!


Rebecca Huston What got me was that he caught the jewish angst so well, and the personalities, and even working in the mysticism. Well. That was simply the cat's meow to me.


Cheryl You got it covered, Rebecca! Entertaining with substance...one I'll remember.
