Three Delays has all that and more. It is funny (and I don't just mean the snappy dialogue Smith is known for) and full of heart! The narrator, Billy Brent, has a take on life that made me laugh out loud one moment and moved me to tears the next. Billy is comically (and tragically) misguided in his relentless pursuit of his love--Alice, and he is in need of regular infusions of various substances to make it through the day, but he is also immensely likeable. He's a tender soul, a sweet-talker, a conniver, a frightened boy, an escape artist reaching the end of his line.
When I reached the final pages of Three Delays, I felt saddened that soon I'd no longer be immersed in the world of Billy and Alice. I hope I won't have to wait another decade(plus) to read a new novel by this great American writer.
