J.L. Merrow, I think I love you! You have created a character in Al that is so true and real that he came alive in my mind. His voice was as clear to me as if he were standing right in front of me, making me feel like a voyeur in my own living room! And I, right along with Larry, could not help but fall in love!
And Larry holds a special place in my heart too for he was willing to look beyond the 'packaging' and took the time and effort to get to know Al's virtues rather than only seeing his deficiencies.
I LOVE THIS BOOK!
