It is such a joy to sit down and read a book.
I just finished reading Langdimania by Lach. And, I reviewed it on Amazon. Here is the review:

Langdimania is like JD Salinger (if I liked Salinger’s work) meets the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe without the Christian overtones and stuffy language. Yay. Some coming-of-age-meets-magical-realism, Lach-style!
A delightful and humorous tale incorporating time and space travel, the power of love and imagination, and belief in the goodness of life – all while navigating the treacherous landscape of junior high school!

Woohoo! I was especially happy I enjoyed this book since I have been friends with Lach since (gulp) 1988! I knew him back when I was a squatter on the Lower East Side and he was a musician and bartender at the Chameleon Club. Oh, those days . . .
Lach has always been a kind person and a champion of artists everywhere.
Lach is also a comedian and a singer and a songwriter and the founder of the Antifolk Movement and the star of BBC 4’s The Lach Chronicles.
Check out his music on Bandcamp!
