Shane Liviu, I wondered if you tried his stuff. Not for you huh?
Question for ya, Do you know what kind of car that is on the cover? Love that car!

message 2: by Liviu (new) - added it

Liviu Sadly not for me - prose just does not talk to me; at first would have said it was subject/location but I just loved Brooklyn by Colm Toibin

Have no idea about that car though...

message 3: by Shane (new)

Shane So, It's set in Brooklyn or NYC?
Yeah, I'd tried to figure out that car. Looks like a Chrysler or Caddy, but not sure. lol

message 4: by Liviu (new) - added it

Liviu What's the difference between Brooklyn and NYC? Brooklyn *is* NYC for many; Manhattan became a "place to live" recently, before it was Brooklyn that symbolized NYC - Toibin's novel takes place in the early 50's

message 5: by Shane (new)

Shane Yeah, You're right. Sorry, I don't know what I was thinking. I know better. The Toibin novel sounds good too, though.
