Available from Internet outlets.

Noticed you liked Ice Storm, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a dysfunctional family and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:



Pardon me for interrupting your thoughts, but I noticed your name on a book recommendation ('Woody Allen & Philosophy' - twin passions of mine) and see that we share (more than) the three titles listed.

Also, it should be said, I have a fondness for the little people, and wondered if you might be one of them (given your description of yourself). Many of dem fellas emigrated to Coney Island from hereabouts.

You're not Karen Coyle, the librarian, are you?
