i swear i WILL not read another of his tomes.
just read the sequel to A STAR Called Henry
which - historical portayal aside - was quite a fun read.

Howvever - in Oh Play Me That Thing, Henry pics up in prohibition America as Loius Armstrong's "white boy" and brief sex-toy to florence grattan.

i liked ASCH because i liked the history behind it - the irish uprising of 1916

but this is lazy - just rewrting history by adding an extra character

go deo na h√Čireann
