This is another work of literature that I somehow bypassed in my studies growing up. I cannot recall how so many others have read this book yet it remained untouched for me. I read to this Avery over the span of a few weeks and we absolutely loved the novel. While it was a bit wordy at times, and the dialogue difficult for me to master, it was a delightful romp.
The characters were so colorful and exciting. The racism at times risque for today’s ears but a good reminder of how things used to be. If you have not read this novel you better do so and the rest of his novels.
