A LAMP ON THE PLAINS

Sequel of Main Line West and a better book, but still leaves an impression of incompleteness and lack of integration. There must be another book coming -- and this one is difficult to follow, at first, without having read the earlier book so wont prove easy selling. In it the son of the travelling salesman who had deserted his mother before his birth, and the woman evangelist whom he sees stoned to death, is shunted by a contradictory fate hither and yon, finally taking some sort of root under the protection of a fine man who fathers him along with his own motherless trio. Market -- those who liked the other book.
