    Love your reviews. Let’s hear it for “The Golden Calf”!

      Thank you very much. I will be getting to The Golden Calf soon. I am in need of a good comedy and The Twelve Chairs was phenomenal.

    …And that was a year and a half ago. How is “The Golden Calf” coming along?

    • Kerry says:

      Hey, thanks for checking back. I owe you an apology. I did read The Golden Calf and I loved it. I am very busy with work, but am hoping to get back to posting on December 1, 2012.

      There are other books and other reviews in my backlog, but I will make a The Golden Calf review a priority when I do get back to substantive posts. (January at the latest…..see, hedging already…..)

      But thanks for checking back!
