    1 thought on “Table Money”

    1. Shouldn't list this as "read" as I couldn't finish, and that almost never happens. I felt it just dragged. Love Breslin, too.

    2. First chapter is great. Writing is locally very good but globally disjointed (yeah, yeah life is random, but a book about it shouldnt be). Knows what he writes about: he himself is Queens, Irish, and all that means. 3.5 stars.
