When you cross the threshold into the rough drinking establishment known as Sam's Place, you soon discover that all fall short, all sin's the same, and everyone survives best they can. Regulars like Wilson and Noxanne, Donnie and Luann, Archie and Slim are part of a ragtag clan shepherded by the steady Sam, finding despite themselves a little joy and respite in this bar's safe haven. Bob Mustin's savory prose gets inside you, hearty and nourishing, and full of truth that no matter how wayward, the human heart tends toward right and always wants a home. Mustin is a Southern treasure. If you're a fan of rich characterization and the wayward adventures of oddball yet relatable individuals always locking horns, and if you require a setting that lives and breathes like a human, check out this book. I'm a reader of Flannery O'Connor, Doris Betts, Larry Brown, Tim McLaurin, and Elizabeth Spencer. With his own unique style, Mustin can hold his own with this good company.
