KIRKUS REVIEW

Dad and son stuff here for weightier questions than in the recent Zama. I Love You for 10 year old Pete recounts their conversations on life, death, school, people, love, food, cars, writing. Pete goes to live with Pop, who is a writer now about to write a cookbook, at Malibu Beach; they make a trip to Half Moon Bay, San Francisco; there is Christmas with his mother and sister; they romp and race -- and talk.... Saroyan can be boy-man, turnabout, in this excursion through a basic mollifying philosophy and continue his non-stop monologue. Not necessarily a Father's Day gift.
