The book was “Enthusiastically recommended” by Library Journal‘s reviewer (Jan. 15), who feels it lives up to Jim the Boy. The only newsstand review so far (pub date is next week) is from the Kansas City Star. The reviewer manages to elegantly explain why the author’s simple prose style is so satisfying. The Times will have a long way to go to top it.
