Okay, I will admit - I've never read this one before. AND I thought Erskine Caldwell was a woman. Hmmmf.
I'm about three-quarters of the way through, and I'm a leeetle confused. Is this supposed to be a comedy? I mean, there's the whole thing with totalling the brand new car, and the thing with Dude marrying Bessie, and it seems like it's supposed to be funny, but ......... these people are starving. And unbelievably ignorant. I don't know if I'm supposed to laugh, or not.
Anybody? Your thoughts?
