I have anxiously awaited the last book in this trilogy (ok and another quirky postcard -See Below -from this author). The main character George is bumbling through life, trying to be a good guy in a world that is not always good nor easy to understand. Maybe the real appeal for me is that I identify with George’s mom!
George’s idiosyncratic view of his own life and world keeps me interested and entertained. Throw in free-spirited supporting cast members and some oddball humor and I am happy each time I read this author.
While I have never surfed, and there is little I have found appealing in my visits to California, Barron makes me reconsider both. Maybe, if I am brave enough on my next visit, I’ll go looking for the little town in this book. – YOU thought I was going to say try surfing, didn’t you???????
Third in the Bocas Trilogy, Bolinas takes George to Northern California.
He’s got an assignment in a quiet beach town with an unnerving welcoming party.
