it was amazing

This is just a delightful book. I first read a condensed version about three years ago and then got the book on Amazon. It's about a man who is given a death sentence by his doctor. He changes locations, lifestyles and interests and along the way runs into a delightful little girl.

Two quotes: "On the way back home, Oswald thought about it and wondered which was worse, being an accordion player or being an alcoholic. He figured it was a toss-up." (page 95)
"The only time he did not fish was on Saturday afternoon when everybody in Lost River had the Saturday opera on the radio and you could hear it up and down the river. Claude said it was no point to try because all those Italians screaming like that scared the fish so bad they wouldn't bite anyway."

If you're feeling down, read this book. And, keep it around for the next time you are feeling down.
