    This book is an anthology of four short stories that are interlinked and cover a 40 year ish time span I loved the first three but the last left me feeling indifferent But you may feel different about them all, who knows Worth reading for the first three alone and the veiled references to dodge politicians and unscrupulous tabloid journalism...
