Red Sky at Morning (Perennial Classics) by Richard Bradford
Red Sky at Morning (Perennial Classics)

KimElisa, October 24, 2006

While on vacation this summer on the coast of Maine, I found this delightful book on a shelf of neglected paperbacks in a used bookstore. What a treasure!! From the first page I was hooked... and laughing out loud. Irreverent humor? You bet! Hilarious, and poignant, and just a great story. My husband, a former English prof, had never read it, and couldn't believe he was hearing me chuckle and laugh through the whole book. (It was delightful to hear him do the same when I gave it to him to read when I was finished.) I wanted more Richard Bradford, and was disappointed to discover that he wrote only one other novel, and also that he passed away in 2002. (I had intended to contact him somehow and thank him for writing such a wonderful book.) I'm going to try to find the movie, but it cannot come close to the book.
