If you've not read Fredric Brown, this is a good place to start. But pretty much everything he wrote is a good place to start. This novel is a morality play, a summery Saturday pulp fiction, and a horror story. It is written in a variety of styles, as a novel, as a movie script, as the calling of a radio ballgame. The horrifying ending to nursery rhyme is threaded throughout the book. It's delicious 'cause you know it's coming. And makes for a neat sardonic ending.Recommend this book? Oh, yes. It's a quiet subtle novel that will get under your skin
