Absolutely brilliant picture of a time and a place,
This review is from: Crossing California (Mass Market Paperback)To me, the mark of a good novel is that when I'm finished reading, I want to pick up the phone, call the author, and say, "Write more about these characters!". And, that's what I'd like to do here.
Langer writes about quirky, interesting, people in a little visited time, the late '70's and early '80's. The book is set on the North Side of Chicago. The ten or so main characters intersect in wonderful and strange ways. Often a supporting name will pop up in a different mix than orginally set. There's very little plot to "Crossing", but that doesn't matter.
So, Mr Langer, pleae write a second novel and let us know what happens!
PS - I'll never quite use the word "which" the same way again, after reading this book!
