review 1: This was my first reading of a book by this author. I was taken by surprise. The writing style had a quality and kindness to it that I loved from the beginning. The author takes us on a journey without becoming tiresome. There are no long drawn out descriptions, but rather the gentle tale comes across as if a narrative between friends having coffee. Walter is likeable as is his wife Phyllis. The homosexual theme of the book is interesting and I found this to be an altogether pleasant reading experience. I intend to try other books by Anne Bernays.

Wifey and daughter got in a couple of sharp jabs that got a chuckle out of me. Overall, it was very well written and thought out. It was absolutely believeable but something I pray I will never have to experience. I wonder how authors come up with these things... less
