a tedious and pointless exercise (also totally unbelievable) that shows that Galassi has no idea what makes up a novel or a novel-reading experience. Disappointing on every level.

This novel was billed as "about writers' secrets, publishers' obsessions, manuscripts, love, loyalty, and betrayal." For the first 150 pages I felt really disappointed. But then, things picked up and I enjoyed it. Paul Dukach actually meets his idol, the poet Ida Perkins, and learns the secret of her life and gets to publish her magnum opus posthumously. I was glad I read this book.
