THE TRAMP AND HIS WOMAN

A dark horse -- but the author can write, and in this story of the English highroads and hedges, of itinerant farm workers, of a strange love of a tramp for the woman he befriended and whose love for security outweighed all else, we have a singularly moving document of one segment of society today. One can almost see and smell the sights and scents that form the background for the story -- it is sensuous writing in the best sense of the word. A tragic finale has an inevitability that one is forced to accept. For the Hardy -- Kaye-Smith public.
