Laura Simandl (
Sat, 3 Apr 1999 10:39:21 -0800 I've been lurking forever, mainly because I'm not nearly as well read as
everyone on the list so my input to any discussion would not be in the least
bit valuable. The McCoy topic, however, I had to respond to. I've read
They Shoot Horses and thought it was great. After seeing favorable messages
for Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye I decided to give that a try. I went to the book
store to look for it and was surprised to see a familiar cover. I'd already
read the book and like Mr. Lau I couldn't remember a thing about it. I even
went to Amazon hoping a blurb there would remind me. Nothing. So I'm
curious as well as to what is so great about this book.
