Until today, there were three, living authors, that if they write something, I will make sure that I buy and read it.
The three are:
Today, I added a fourth, L. B Johnson and learned I have some shopping and catching up to do.
One of our daughters picked up The Book of Barkley for me as a Christmas present.
I had a little time and read the first eighty pages this afternoon and am here to tell you I do not ever recall reading an author that paints with words the way Ms. Johnson does. She weaves a tale of life, death, love and lonliness while sharing her relationship with a Black Lab named Barkley. I don’t want to sound corny, but I can find a pull-quotes on every page.
Yes, it is that good.
