You're right. It was "Escape." Like Buffett, Holmes is another person who has "graduated" from writing songs to writing novels. I count on the garage sale our church has each spring as one good source of used books. In the bag of novels I bought this year was a book written by Jimmy Buffett. If any of you out there are huge Jimmy fans and if you also think his novels are terrific, I think that is fine. Different strokes and all that. I couldn't finish the thing even though I kept trying for several nights. To me, reading it was like pushing a bus with no wheels through deep mud. Far too many characters, almost nothing to tie them together and the plot was silly. I know, some of you may be thinking "silliness was why his songs were charming," but there's a difference between 3 minutes of silly and 500 pages of silly.
