Larry Baker is an Iowa author, so it was a big press deal here when this book first came out. I read the book and loved it. It's quirky, touching, and strikes a chord with almost any reader. And, he says, yes, there really was a Frank the Dog! I've heard Mr. Baker read from this a couple times, and many of the details in the book are based on incidents in his life - he ran a movie theater, and the story about the woman found in the restroom stall is true! The Hallmark Hall of Fame movie really didn't do this book justice. I recommended it to our reading group and just about everyone loved it. I hope you do too! And pass it on!
