When Philip was reading Dee McNamer’s fourth novel “Red Rover”, he would glance up every so often and say something like “This is an incredible story”. “Her writing is like poetry…”. When I replied, or attempted to have the briefest conversation, he’d look at me as though I was REALLY interrupting him – couldn’t I see he was very engrossed and not in a mood to chat? So get this book, turn off the phone and shut the door.
