"We meet Weldon Holland, first as a young boy, captivated by Bonnie & Clyde, then follow him through the conditions of WWII as he earns a hero's status, including the rescue of a woman from a Nazi death camp. Post-war Weldon and his war buddy commercialize the welding technique that revolutionizes oil drilling in TX, OK and LA. Shakespeare would be envious of the descriptive paragraphs Burke writes as we accompany Weldon from boy, to war hero, to husband. In his evolving story he encounters evil that rivals his horrors of WWII."
"Need a break from all the murder and mayhem you have been reading lately? Pick up this fun and playful satire about a certain esteemed British literary prize. Here is your ticket to the inner workings of the often snotty and political literary world. Hilarious!"
Here at Bay Books, one thing we are known for and enjoy doing is having all our staff hand write reviews of books they have recently read.
