KIRKUS REVIEW

Strong meat, not intended for weak stomachs. Pick your customers among the Caldwell -- Farrell fans. The story of almost illiterate Cass, who grows up in squalor in Texas and takes to the road. Brutalities, cruelties, bestialities -- Cass is pathetic in his overlarge share of the world's blame and punishments. A complete misfit, never hardened in his sordid living, but never knowing any better. His story is probably the story of many sociological problems.
