Dealer Notes
This is James Leo Herlihy's first novel since he made his spectacular debut, with 'All Fall Down,' as the creator of a fresh and wholly modern idiom-racy, wild, tough, alive, inexpressibly moving-through which to explore the humaness of human beings. His extraordinary ability to connect the reader with a life that at first seems altogether alien is focused, in 'Midnight Cowboy,' on the rootless wanderers and hustlers of the dark underside of America from Texas to Time Square."
