Editorial Reviews

Brooklyn Daily Eagle - Book Reviews
Jarnegan is all Tully, a book to warm the he-man and stir the jaded sophisticate. –
The American Mercury - H. L. Mencken
“If Tully were a Russian, read in translation, all the Professors would be hymning him. He has all of Gorky’s capacity for making vivid the miseries of poor and helpless men, and in addition he has a humor that no Russian could conceivably have.”
