This review is from: Checker and the Derailleurs (P.S.) (Paperback)
Must be hard to recover after falling from such a high pedestal, but that is what happens to checker, our lead drummer, when most of his friends abandon him because of his upbeat yet defeatist personality.
Checker loves everything and mostly everyone and the band and himself make-up a quirky group to follow around Astoria. The parks, bridges, bars, all being much more than just places, they are part of each person and their acts.
The plot does lack a little action, a little complexity, and it would have been nice to get out of the city scene, but all in all it's a very recommendable novel.
