When I think about this story, I don’t remember the plot (ok, but not memorable) or the bad guys (they couldn’t exist today), but rather individual scenes. The description of Travis finding the man with the yellow eye is well done and captures the feel of the rural Midwest as well as he ever captured the feel of Florida, and the scene where he encounters  the Darling Bread Boy and the libidinous housewife will never shake its way loose from my brain.

Update (09/25/2013): Corrected the printing date.
