Danke dir, Maccabros! Es freut mich sehr. 🙂
I like this so much! Good one@#
Thank you! I am enjoying reading this novel so much. On nearly every page I am laughing, or finding something very apt. James is a marvel.
One of his best novels, at least one of my favorites.
Yay! You know it! I have been reading the novel and laughing aloud, sighing, clapping. James has a style I enjoy and admire. I’m glad to know I’m not alone. 🙂
Have a nice week, Evelyne–
