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
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 finest love story I have read in years. Perfect I'd say.
