    muore a sessantasei anni a causa di un overdose di pillole per dormire queste le parole alla fine della descrizione dell autore mi hanno stupita, e convinta sin da subito che Herlihy non fosse uno che scriveva tanto per farlo, ma pi per dare uno sfogo alla sua mente vivace e la lettura me lo ha confermato, essendo piena di osserv

    Browsing a Half Priced Books in Houston and looking for something to read, I came across this Been wanting to read it for some time now, given Herlihy s other novel, Midnight Cowboy This is a novel of a certain time in America, published in 1960 It reminds me a lot of Capote and MacCullers and others of that time Writing straight
