Great Summer Read

by SeldomSeen on Aug 10, 2007

Laurence Shames is really growing on me. At first blush his novels are funny, fast and easily digestible. Along with the happy hour prose, however, there's some keen insights, funny observations and great character tics. Consider this passage from Scavenger Reef: 'To be sure, the Key West Artsy set had gravitated to him: the writers who didn't write, the sculptors who didn't sculpt, the trust-funders kept just shy of suicidial self-loathing by the mercifully untested belief that they were in some sense creative... ' Having lived in a self-proclaimed artist town, I had to laugh aloud. As with other Shames novels, the plot is a litle thin, but there's plenty of great writing and lots of laughs. If you looking for a fun, quick read over vacation, you can't go wrong.
