This was an odd little tale peopled with rural characters grappling with their relationship to water management. Yup. With descriptions of gypsies straight out of The Wolfman and a generous use of the term "Jewess," again and again. Two thirds of the way in I still had a feeling that this was a silly work. But as has been the case for me in earlier readings of Lawrence's fiction, by this novellas completion, all of a sudden, I realized it was a worthwhile.
