Eddie Watkins Curious how this hits you. I've never read him but I do have his most recent and will get to it soon.

David So far I really like it. Much more humane (again, so far) than I expected from his rep. (I also have his newest—which I'll get to soon.)

Eddie Watkins I thought you hated hardbacks.

David Eddie wrote: "I thought you hated hardbacks."

I generally do. But I'm mercurial.

Eddie Watkins I'm nothing if not mercurial too, except when it comes to my opinion of bushy goatees.

David Well, sometimes and in such cases firm stands beg to be taken.

Eddie Watkins I just thought you'd like to know that I am indeed capable of giving 1 star to something, though, admittedly, bushy goatees are not literary works.

David Have there been movies you've given one star to? I'd love to know some examples.

Eddie Watkins It will require deep and meditative stroking of my hairless chin to come up with one but I will try to deliver by day's end.

Eldonfoil TH*E Whatever Champion I have goatee....since the day chin sprouts appeared......but not bushee....
