CUSTARD is probably my least favorite by Willeford. I certainly though
can't say enough good things about books like HIGH PRIEST OF CALIFORNIA,
COCKFIGHTER, THE WOMAN CHASER, THE PICKUP and, to a slightly lesser extent,
THE DIFFERENCE. He has some other good ones, too, of course, but those are
the ones that leap immediately to my mind when recommending Willeford. I
was never as fond of his Hoke Moseley novels as I was his standalones, but
that's typical of me w/ just about every author.
