Editorial Reviews

Gale Research
Commenting on Davis Grubb's The Night of the Hunter, a reviewer in the San Francisco Chronicle noted: "First of all, Mr. Grubb makes this a fast-paced, technically admirable tale. Second, he has done this without sacrificing quality. He is a good writer--a very good one indeed--and that fact sticks out all over his book." Gene Baro of the New York Herald Tribune Book Review calledThe Night of the Hunter "a remarkable first novel, conveying the strength of a rich talent. It is not without flaw; the author's intelligence sometimes obtrudes upon and complicates his materials; but it is nevertheless an unusually readable and exciting book."
