I got this book for $1 at a Church Bazaar sale. Since I'd enjoyed Bonfire of the Vanities, I thought I'd give this a try. I postponed reading it because of its massive size. But when I finally dug in, it was hard to put the book down. This book was a LOT of fun to read! One of the two main characters was writ LARGE, because that fit his LARGE lifestyle. The other main character was subtle and intriguing, because that was HIS way of being.
The way these two characters came to be together, and the result of that relationship is absolutely hilarious (if not altogether believable). I finish the book being very glad I'd invested the time to read it.
