A delightful read from start to finish. The characters are well drawn, the dialogue is spot on and, despite there being a cast of thousands, I could easily keep up with who was who. The Baer Boys is always amusing and often laugh out loud funny but at the same time there is an underlying pathos. I don’t mean it’s schmaltzy or anything like that but just that it has heart. It would make a great film - or a musical even.
