The Ghost of Neil Diamond

The Ghost of Neil Diamond - David Milnes This book is a dark comedy, even in the moments where there are signs that optimism may raise it’s head, a bloody great sword would come swooping down, just to let you know that such idealism was unwarranted here, and yet this book constantly made me smile, the characters here are fantastic, the strangely seedy, dishonest & yet otherworldly nature of Elbert Chan, the snooty humour of the office girls, the sheer desperation sweating from every pore (along with the booze) of Iannis and the self blinding naivety & pity of the hero(anti?) himself, just brought a smile to my face and a chortle from my lips.http://parrishlantern.blogspot.com/2012/01/ghost-of-neil-diamond.html
