'Miracle' is a fitting memorial to Larry's talent. After the posthumous publishing disaster (in my opinion) that was Willie Morris' 'Taps' I held off a long time on 'Miracle,' but eventually couldn't let it lie any longer. The meandering nature of it really nails home the sad fact that there will be no new Larry Brown to read. It's one of those books that you'd be happy to wander through forever, knowing that when it's over, it really is.

And damn I love listening to Silas read. When I worked at Lemuria you were always guaranteed a good audience for Silas' readings. You could just see the ladies swooning within 10 seconds of him taking the stage.
