At the risk of spilling the beans on any future JLB works coming out....I went back and re-read about 4 times the last couple of chapters of The Glass Rainbow, trying to figure out if there was any way Dave and Clete could have survived at the end of the book. Since the book was released, there has been a lot of anguish over their fates, with most of us accepting that our 2 favorite characters had finally run out their string. Now, however, after reading and re-reading and re-re-reading those last couple of chapters...I'm not so sure. I will go no further. JLB is certainly, in my opinion, a master of the denouement. I can't wait for September 12, 2012.
