Fun trip of a novel, engaging and page-turning. Finished it in a few nights and can't get some scenes out ofmy head, especially the ending and the epilogue. Was surprised to find the little town he described actually exists. Novel is great for people who like romances that aren't exactly romances, stories of what could have been, and characters who's lives are at a crossroads. Overall, highly recommended, one of the best books I've read this summer. Would make a great movie.

John Grabowski's "Entertaining Welsey Shaw" is both entertaining and funny, and is also very well-written. The prose is finely crafted and flows well, without ever making the empty literary gestures common to many self-proclaimed "serious" writers. I was particularly impressed with the protagonist's interior monologues. Daniel is a smart, witty guy thrown into an unexpected and unusual relationship with a celebrity. His musings on the situation - and on his life in general - are some of the most memorable passages in the book. Despite the implausibility of the situation, Grabowski makes the setup believable, aided by well-chosen details of local NYC color and a tight, effective writing style. Much of the book focuses on conversations and personal interactions, which may not sit well with those expecting some sort of action-packed blockbuster. But to my mind, this is another of the book's strengths: thoughtful discussions and shifting relationships between interesting people, told with style and rueful laughter. Highly recommended.
