Putnam’s- Fiction – pages. The father was a high school teacher, and you got the impression they lived pretty poor. It grabbed me from the very beginning which has been rare these days with the books I have read and this one kept me involved unti I’ve had this book for years and years and haven’t really dhitley to read it but I finally pulled it out.
I admire this story for not pulling a single punch.

Funny how that works. Steieber, it’s gets 2 stars for inspiration for a very disturbing horror flick and for being a book that I’ll probably remember forever. To say it’s not light reading, even for those drawn to darker stories, is an understatement.
