My lovely and talented friend Tom, who blogs about books at Tomcat in the Red Room, has had a temporary lapse in his usually stellar judgement and allowed me to write a guest post for him!
I'm reviewing one of my very favourite novels: Richard Yates' incomparable, heartbreaking The Easter Parade, and you can read it here (the review, not the book - although you should read that too).
PS. I shall be awarding one pulled pork sandwich to the first commenter to name that tune in the title of this post. (Please allow time for overseas delivery.)
