I spent some kid years in Texas and Fromm's dirt-dry desert depictions are spot on. His characters are highly memorable, especially high-flyin' Abilene...made me grateful that I've only got the depressive side of "manic-depression". Whooo doggies. There were times when even I felt trapped in her careening beater of a truck (poor thing), times when I nearly said, stop this book, I gotta get out! If you've ever lived with a bi-polar, you'll know the feeling.

Life in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the desert..."but it's a dry heat", my tail. Sometimes I think folks in hell find themselves saying, "heck, it's hotter'n Texas in here!" Be sure to settle in to read with a tall glass of sweet tea...you'll feel parched and wind-blown by the end.
