A fantastic first novel that took me back to a time I'd almost forgotten!
The book is beautifully crafted, and really well written - a total joy to read.

Did not connect to any of the characters, and found the main char., Carl very annoying. He just drifted along, like the book, with not much to offer. Everyone fussed & fawned over him constantly.....always the center of attention for no apparent reason. Supposedly physically attractive, yet withdrawn except when on stage. There he expressed all his pent up rage and angst to the point of madness. But why?? We'll never know, personally don't care. He was fussed & fawned over by every.other character in the book. Everyone was in love w/him though he offered nothing in return. A self-absorbed very weak and needy character.
Would not reccomend this book. Can't believe the same author wrote "Bad Little Girl" which I thoroughly enjoyed.
