The finest love story I have read in years. Perfect I'd say.
Baxter's Requiem is a feelgood tale for the modern age . . . There is a touching tenderness between the two men as their friendship develops and despite the up-to-date touches, there is something refreshingly old-fashioned about this book . . . Crow's prose is natural and the story moves along swiftly . . . It is an easy read with an edifying tale of men dealing with their difficulties at different points in their lives.
The fact that this novel is so witty is incidental to how good it is - it has characters you care about deeply and a heart as big as a cathedral
