This novella is a great read and also a great introduction to the writing of Denis Johnson, if you haven't read anything of his yet. This is the story of one man whose life spans a time when the country experienced incredible change. It is also a haunting story, delivering an ongoing account of an individual's thoughts as his life progresses. He was not a famous or remarkable person, but this is a remarkable story in so few pages.

I'm impressed by the eloquence of this simple chronicle of a simple life. But readers should be aware that they're paying for aabout 65 pages of narrative. -- catwak

The story reads as someone recalling their own life’s events. It starts with a specific memory which leads Robert Grainier to recall a separate experience and then back to yet a different memory; and so he weaves back and forth as he retells his vivid, candid memories. As you sit back and read you learn not only about the kind of man Grainier is but also about life in the United States at this time in history. It is full of folklore and superstition only adding to its charm. It is wonderful, fun, light reading. A great way to spend a few hours on a quiet weekend.

Would never have purchased if I knew it was only 79 pages. Read the book in one sitting. Not worth the money. It was no The Little Prince.
