I haven't, but I just read Tom Nolan's review of it:

(That's all one line, if your mail reader splits it.) He says, "Sallis has done a remarkable job of weaving social history and literary explication into a fascinating, often gripping narrative about a writer and person who all his life stood 'at a hard right angle to the world.'"

Mr. Sallis is on this list, too.
