It Lifted Me Up

The Seafood Snob Speaks

Much enjoyed Stripah. As I read it over the weekend - my spirits sodden from too much cool, wet, spring weather - it lifted me up, transporting me to a beach chair by the sunny shores of Indian Mound where I could sit and savor the goings on there. So many things I liked about the novel and the characters. I sympathized a lot with Artie's mid-life plight, sense of loss (and optimism), nostalgia, and relationship with his son and cousin. Nice too how you managed to weave the lives of the disparate characters together, creating friendship, romance, and renewal in an unlikely spot. I had many a good chuckle along the way.

Since I'm not a fisherman and probably never will be, I'm not likely to put Sandy's advice to good use, but I'm glad that you've carefully preserved a few classic seafood recipes with all their nuances and local flavor as I'm the ultimate New England low-brow seafood fare snob. Hard to find a chowdah these days that isn't made mostly of flour, cream, and some poor excuse for clams.

Best of luck with the book. I suspect it will do well.
