Hey Ves! Brilliant book as always. Love to all and when you talk to Evan, tell him I said hi. Glad to see you so successful. Think of your mom and dad often. Great memories.

Just ordered your novel "Lake Overturn" for my Kindle. It was recommended to me by our mutual friend Nichole Warner, and I'm really looking forward to reading it. She's already convinced me it will be fantastic!

Hi Vestal Just finished Lake Overturn, that young Jamie from Crystal Palace lent me (he said he was going to mention it to you when he saw you on Saturday just gone!)...Just wanted to say I really really enjoyed it, beautifully done. Do you read Patrick Gale at all? There were echoes of him in your writing style. But don't worry, still unique :)

"Disability"--such great writing! I grew so fond of the characters in this short story, that I came to think they deserve their own novel. The quirky diversity of gay men who live in New York is overlooked by writers who are always focused on observing groups and sub-groups. While gay men can be quite insular, this story has one of those rare central characters who thrives on bringing disparate people together. And he is incredibly likable.

I loved Lake Overturn. Some things that made this a great book: the kids in your book thought and talked like kids, not like Saturday morning cartoon characters or that moron in " Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" who sounded like a shrunken 80 year old. They made normal embarrassing mistakes, not cutesy mistakes. When Enrique was starting to succeed at track and shot himself in the foot by undoing the runner's bra, I was cringing in embarrassment. That's the kind of thing kids do. And he was too awkward and embarrassed to fix the problem so it didn't immediately become some moral object lesson. Another aspect of your book that was delightful was the contrast between characters, like the scene where Gene was trying to explain his science project to his super-religious mom who didn't even believe in evolution. That was hysterical. I look forward to your next book. Thanks so much for this one.
