Barry Gifford's book is a quick fun read that will appeal to fans of the movie as well as fans of pulp fiction, and I'm not talking about the Tarantino film. There is little actual narration in the book. To me, that meant more great material and a couple of more hours to enjoy these crazy people with stories I wasn't familiar with. I can't get enough of the great dialog, and I'd love to see Gifford write another tale of Sailor and Lula.

A subtle, impeccably rendered new novel from one of America's most distinctive writers.

As the mother drives, she and the boy, Roy, talk about their lives, their disappointments, and their dreams.
