What can I say? This book is listed as an all time classic, however, I am quickly discovering that if a book is labeled either a bestseller or an alltime great then they are usually crap. Kind of like academy award winning movies now a days. Unfortunately the critics have come to the point where they determine what is a classic. This book is classically well written I'll give the author his dues there. Aside from that the book is a snoozer and not worth the effort and time to read.
I guess that makes me a bad man and not so much of a fan of the jazz era.
