Manny I just don't know why I haven't read this. I love The Golden Gate and have read it at least five times... I can't explain it!

Maybe because one of them is a poem and therefore succinct and the other is a novel that doesn't stop. Sort of an American supersized get a free upgrade to an extra large fries too.

The amazing thing is not that you haven't read this novel, but that people who read his other stuff largely haven't read The Golden Gate. My understanding is that short books don't go down well in America, the obesity thing extending to reading. Is that true? Somebody who should have known told me....

Chris I have this in three volumes. I need to read the last one.

Grace Tjan I love this book. I remember taking it to the office, intending to read it during lunch break or between meetings --- it ended up gobbling up a lot of the time that I was supposed to use for working. My time sheet was a mess during the time that I was reading it. It's that addictive.

I also love War and Peace, so maybe I'm a literary chubby chaser. I don't mind supersized books as long as they are as good as those two.

Whitaker Thanks guys. It IS a really good book isn't it?

Chris, you really need to read the last volume. But if it's been a while since you read the first two, will you remember the various characters?
