    Enjoyable

    This is a creative, well-written novel with an interesting main character. I don't usually enjoy books that use letter-writing as a vehicle, but this was done well. My only complaint is that I didn't quite believe the protagonist, as enjoyable a character as he was. He flipped from being clueless to spouting outstanding insights a little too rapidly. But, overall, I would recommend this delightful, original book to a friend.

    Belated Coming of Age Story

    Bartholomew is a naive, sweet, unemployed 40 year old man who has devoted his life to being his mother's companion, and later, caregiver. His mother dies. How he manages to pull his life together by imagining Richard Gere as his mentor and pouring out his heart in a series of tell-all letters, accumulating an angst-ridden selection of fellow late bloomers that culminates in a wild and impromptu trip to the Cat Parliament of Ottawa Canada, is a heart-warming tale well worth reading. Quirky, funny, insightful and poignant - I'm looking forward to more by this author.
