By marshall blondy on December 10, 2003
Format: Hardcover
living in michigan across the river from windsor ontario i am fortunate to listen to "music and company" on cbc hosted by tom allen the author of Toe Rubber Blues. each morning i enjoy allen's wry, insightful, and usually clever, and always knowledgeable comments on the music he is playing. one day i looked him up on the cbc's excellent web site and discovered he had written this very enjoyable collection of essays about approaching middle age. as i emerge from my seventh decade i was frequently amused and often intigued by allen's musings. this was a very enjoyable exploration of a different side of tom allen and one i highly reccomend to his many listeners
