Read in October, 2011

Really worth the reservations that I had at the beginning...Societal and seedy New York in the early 30's..I feel like I've walked through a labyrinth of speakeasies and dark thoughts that people rarely reveal-John O'Hara writes like a more acidic, gin-drunken Fitzgerald..yeah maybe an F. Scott without money and his insight into the human brain is what makes this so so good even today..it's also like many short stories combined!Shocking ending..
