The Dork of Cork by Chet Raymo

The Dork of Cork

As I began to wind down the Irish Books Challenge, I decided to get a used copy of The Dork of Cork from Amazon.  When the dog eared paperback arrived, the cover didn't suggest a novel of any promise.  The central character is 43 year old Frank Bois who is a soon-to-be-published author - and a dwarf!  Isolated by his perceived ugliness, Frank nonetheless communicate his love of beauty - of beautiful women who he admires from afar and of the stars.  In the end I was glad I made the effort to find and read this little gem.
