Pinto and Sons (Norton Paperback Fiction). 0393308464 (ISBN13: 9780393308464). This is a deeply unpleasant book. That probably sounds like a slam, but in a strange way, the unpleasantness is welcome; so many portrayals of the Old West are romanticized that seeing it portrayed the way Epstein does here- as primitive, dirty, and grotesquely violent- is kind of refreshing. Still, I could never quite get a handle on this tale of scientific experimentation during the California Gold Rush. The back flap calls the book a "black comedy", but I found it rather short on humor. A This is a deeply unpleasant book.
