The discreet little bar that Jake Stonebender established a few blocks below Duval Street was named simply The Place. Opening night at Mary’s Place draws the refugees from the now-defunct Callahan’s Bar; and bartender Jake Stonebender quickly learns that Mary’s Place attracts as many bizarre events and persons – including a drunken leprechaun – as its beloved predecessor. The story, says Booklist, hangs together on the strength of Jake's appealing voice and the bar scene, which is hip and witty.
I have mixed feelings about this book. Spider and Jeanne met in the woods of Nova Scotia in the early 1970s, and have lived for the last 16 years in British Columbia, where they raise and exhibit hopes. Robinson is clearly trying - he presents the Black people in it as having legitimate grievances - but it makes me deeply uncomfortable that even a sympathetic. Spider now lives on Bowen Island, Vancouver, BC.
Spider is a terrific storyteller but he lost this voracious reader of all things Spider Robinson after I forced myself to finish his anti-American rant
Spider is a terrific storyteller but he lost this voracious reader of all things Spider Robinson after I forced myself to finish his anti-American rant. Hey, dude, WE have a Black President (who, as you may or may not know is an incompetent, arrogant and thoroughly racialist Marxist asshole). When are YOU bozo's going to elect an Inuit Prime Minister?).
