Do not worry if you are daunted by the size of the book-the author conceived the idea for the work over a quarter century ago but did not begin, citing a lack of writing prowess needed for such a weighty topic. Surprising that this author was scared of not being up to the task. This author has been criticized for having trouble with endings, so perhaps it is not surprising that this book’s final scenes were suggested by the author’s son.
Care to join us on a quick geographical tour of the book’s 3 most important settings?
- The first location shares part of its 2-word name with a city of seven hills, a beautiful location where one might enjoy a caldeira stew.
- To reach the second place one might have to negotiate an Alley that is almost 85 miles in length.
- The third place is in the heart of a land of petroleum and shady business dealings (at least according to the TV show). Don’t fear if you have to travel by night-the stars shine brightly.
Still wondering what book it is? We’ll tell you on Tuesday but this year, at least from an historical perspective, it would be more appropriate if we posted on Thanksgiving.
