Blind Date With a Book Comment:"May be my favourite blind date so far. Interesting Characters and circumstances."

One of my favorite books! The trials and tribulations of Howard Kapostash, who is left unable to speak after he is wounded in Vietnam and sustains a serious brain injury, along with other physical injuries. Years later, he takes care of the 9 year old son of an old girlfriend while she is in rehab and finds new meaning to his dull existence.

A good read, an interesting perspective. Some of the characters drove me to distraction, so that was a good thing - meaning I was engaged in the read. I will look for more by this author.
