The Bric-a-Brac Man



NY Times Book Review

©Dec 19 1976

Newgate Callender

“But the main interest in the book is its look at the antiques business, from top to bottom. Bottom, represented by our hero, means scrounging, lying, keeping an eye out for a bargain, taking people and getting taken himself. In some respects, ‘The Bric-a-Brac Man’ is a series of vignettes, many of them very funny. But there is also a plot that satisfies the requirements of the crime novel: There is a murder, and our schnook just manages to keep afloat.”
