MUSCATEL AT NOON by Matt Weinstock


Email this review


By the Los Angeles Daily News favorite columnist, this is a casual, catching miscellany of people and places and problems, hits a note of human interest, occasional humor and an encompassing sympathy. This extends to down and outers and deadbeats, odd birds and crackpots, a part-time beachcomber and a streetsweeper, a tubercular and an alcoholic, an honest mechanic and a forbearing Judge. There's a problem in household soap disposal and the physics involved in bread falling butter side down; there's the last Klondyke- Hollywood, and local politics; fathers on Father's Day; a friendly shark; the rehabilitation of a dog, etc. etc. Of particular interest to his followers, this also has an incidental appeal for others.
