Awwwwwwwww. This book is like a puff pastry, sweet and delicious and just what I needed after my last book.
Capsule review: "This is a sweet, funny book with an incredibly sense of place. I want to
visit Alex and Bijou's Brooklyn with all its color and variety and
energy. It's not all sunny good fun, though. There are some ugly
prejudices lurking under the surface. But Farrar keeps those light,
brushing the edges of the story without making them the central
conflict, and keeping his book light and sweet. Highly recommended for
Might take some networking and knittting-with-audiobook time before I'm off to peruse the shelves for my next pick.
