This Southern author's first of eleven novels. "Mr. Basso writes dialogue as exact and straightforward as Hemingway's or Morley Callaghan's; but he has a greater range than these writers, and he dares try for, and achieves beauties of style and subtleties of understanding that the modern realists do not even attempt."- from the front flap. Awesome art deco DJ shows mankind chained to the machinery of industrial progress.
