Nick & Jake: An Epistolary Novel - Jonathan Richards,  Tad Richards 3.5 stars. An entertaining riff on the McCarthy era told in letters, articles, & telegrams by characters both real & imagined (& who are mostly located in Paris). Quite fun. If you enjoyed the movie "Midnight in Paris" (a complete gem of a film), you may get a kick out of this book. Different time period but a similar vibe.
