Quite the interesting reviewof Jubilee Hitchhiker in the LA Review of Books by Stan Persky.
I haven’t finished Jubilee Hitchhiker – not even a 1/4 of the way thru. Gatz’s very detailed account hasn’t pulled me in (added to my lack of time for pleasure reading). I’d love for an editor to get ahold of this book and, as Stan says, help to understand the significant moments of Richard’s work & life instead of every moment. I also found the overwhelming amount of facts about everything distracting – and long 😉
I have to agree with one of the commenters about the irony of the author of the lengthy review complaining about the length of the book. 😉
