it was ok

The second star is really just General Cheever Goodwill, because I do really love Cheever -- the stories, the Wapshot stuff, especially Falconer, which is beautiful. But this book: yeah, not so much. I think it gets shelved in the "slightly amusing cranky old man" section, next to a few of Philip Roth's lesser novels.
