KIRKUS REVIEW

Hardcover version of the successful original paperback collection of rural Southern stories, with six new items--all of which can cast a spell, like moonshine, if taken in quantities appropriate to one's tolerance for country cut-ups. Through the hound dog havens and general stores, the beer-ringed niteries, baking playing fields attended by frenetic fans, even through the tourist trumpets of Times Square stride some mighty men: a rare and wonderful pitcher whose alcoholic content must be litered by an exquisite timing up till game time; an addled baseball buff who routs a convict nine; two boys who aid and abet the romance of the most giving girl in town; a shy beanpole whose dance rocks a hall; a moonshiner who whoops through the brassier treats of New York City. There are also affectionate views of youthful loves and lures. Pungent as earth-worn overalls, folksy fun saved from banality by an easy lope--this is a satisfying thaw for a hammock afternoon.
