******** Thanks for commenting, Ed. I've got another Wade Miller title that Al Guthrie recommended a long time ago. I think it's a 50s title, too. The wife and I just got back from town. She dragged me by a thrift store and I found THE DEVIL TO PAY by Earl Thompson. I had never heard of it before. I've read CALDO LARGO, TATTOO, and GARDEN OF SAND, and I thought that was all he'd written. I'm really excited about finding it. I rank GARDEN OF SAND up there with McCarthy's BLOOD MERIDIAN and Hemingway's SUN ALSO RISES as one of the best books I've ever read.
