It's hard to believe there isn't some deep autobiographical regret embedded in this book, so brightly realized are the anecdotes. Sometimes fiction is the only way to tell the truth about one's life.
It's Ignatius' Great Gatsby. Well written, but absolutely possible to stop reading it18 August 2019 - Published on Amazon.com
Ignatius is a very good writer, but this is not a thrilling book.

This book reminded me of the great Gatsby.
interesting story but awkwardly written7 July 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
