Subject:        Another Version of R+J

A friend recommended Jeanne Ray's *Julie and Romeo* to me, and though I
was initially skeptical of yet another takeoff, I found myself
thoroughly charmed by the novel.  In Ray's version Romeo and Julie are
both sixty years old and living in Somerville, MA.  They are rival
florists; their families hate each other, though no one can seem to
remember why; and they are hopelessly, desperately in love.  No, it's
not literature but it is a delightful twist on R+J and one of those rare
books that leaves you smiling.  (All right, maybe I shouldn't presume.
It left *me* smiling.)

Enjoy!
