Review: The Beautiful Room is Empty (The Edmund Trilogy #2)

User Review  - Neal - Goodreads

I first read this book about twenty years ago. Recently, it called to me again from my bookshelf. The language is often prose poetry, filled with honesty and humor. When I first read it so long ago, it was an awakening. Now, it's like meeting with an old friend to share fond memories. Read full review
