The story involves a woman trying to get away from gangsters, wearing bikini bottoms encrusted with diamonds; the story is told from the viewpoint of a boy who lives with his male relatives in the backwoods of Texas, all of them speaking genuine cornpone. It's a comedy, but I found nothing funny.
Raised at the racetrack, a boy comes to live on a Texas farm. Billy doesn't know how to read a book, but give him a racing form and he can tell you everything about a pony that you'd ever want to know. He and his father live on the road, traveling from Aqueduct to Hialeah and back again, until an overzealous Welfare lady demands they settle somewhere more wholesome than the track. Not knowing anyplace wholesome, Billy's father takes him to Texas instead, to live on his brother Sagamore's farm.
Charles Williams (1909-1975) was one of the preeminent authors of American crime fiction. Born in Texas, he dropped out of high school to enlist in the US Merchant Marine, serving for ten years before leaving to work in the electronics industry. At the end of World War II, Williams began writing fiction while living in San Francisco. The success of his backwoods noir Hill Girl (1951) allowed him to quit his job and write fulltime. Williams's clean and somewhat casual narrative style distinguishes his novels - which range from hard-boiled, small-town noir to suspense thrillers set at sea.
