BONE HEAD BLURBS
A local wine merchant is shot dead.......
And yet on page 89 of the story I read
"We should add, parenthetically, that Monsieur Mostaguen did not die and that in two weeks he'll be on his feet again......"
A miracle or just another case of professional blurbers, editors and reviewers not actually READING the book. It is the season of goodwill so I won't be too critical but this masterly novella was only 130 pages long.
