#31 Extended NYT Fiction

The Song Is You has been reviewed widely in the consumer press, with wide-ranging reactions, from Michiko Kakutani in the NYT

…reads like a maladroit mash-up of the romantic comedy “Sleepless in Seattle,” in which the hero and heroine meet in real life only in the last reel, and one of those creepy, straight-to-video movies, in which a famous beauty is pursued around the world by an obsessive fan.

to the San Francisco Chronicle,

…takes on loneliness, alienation, middle age and what it means to feel passé and weighted down by your past – “older than baseball players (even knuckleballers).” Yet despite these sober concerns, Phillips’ sparkling prose makes for a seriously fun read.
