I started this when I was a bit blue because the back synopsis makes clear its about a depressed fellah who lives alone out in the cawntry. Little surprise, misery didn't love company in this case. At least not that particular protagonist. But I'm gonna give it another try. I love delicious detail in the descriptions of playing the banjo. There's also alot of coffee sipping and smoking while pondering in the first few pages which I love in novels as much as I love it in movies.
