Bopper’s Progress:

“Another successful journey into the minds and lives of real people being real people. John’s usual subtle humor is much in evidence. A great and delightful read.”

“I love this writer. He is a master of the short vignette that leaves you unexpectedly moved. This is just as wonderfully original as his other work.”
