RARA-AVIS: Re: Gil Brewer reviewed

The review says the novel "...is not much of a novel by today's standards, but it's a wonderful time capsule." Anderson spends a fair amount of time on the time capsule aspect--the sexually repressed 1950s when boys scanned paperbacks for "the good parts." I don't read enough of modern bestseller thrillers to know if he is correct when he says that "sex has begun to fade as a major element in popular fiction."
