This book was a bit melancholy as a whole, but it was interesting to me. You'd only like it if you are fascinated with the way people live day-to-day, what kinds of food people eat, how they spend their free time, or even how one thought leads to another. It is a book about wanting someone you can't have. I enjoyed that this book was written before I was born (copyright 1976). I glimpsed how my parents may have seen the world in their prime.

This first novel by one of America's premier short story writers (made into the popular movie "Head Over Heels" in 1979) is one of the best looks at disenchanted youth since 'Catcher In The Rye' in the 50's & 'Catch-22' in the 60's. Effortlessly perceptive & revealing, with a wry humor & warmth, it is a story both funny & sad, beautiful & biting.
