Review:

"An appalling story, told with great skill, and important because Joe Buck is a characteristic product of the way we live and yet he cannot be adequately discussed outside of a novel. He is not a case but a person, so that poetry and not sociology is the proper instrument for apprehending him, as Mr. Herlihy very well understands. But the poetry sometimes fails because of a gratuitous exercise of Mr. Herlihy's gifts. He has a taste, and a talent, for drawing human grotesques--that literary plague loosed upon us by Sherwood Anderson, confirmed by the Nathanael West of Miss Lonelyhearts, and propagated still, in a somewhat etiolated form, by J.D. Salinger. Good authors, but authors with an infirmity. The defect of the grotesque as a genre is that it exploits exoticism and the nouveau frisson at the expense of reality."

Emile Capouya, Saturday Review, 8/28/1965
