What's appealing about this are the snapshots of Beat and Hippie culture, which Southern captures within the adventures and colloquialisms of his writing. The stories themselves are variable (as with many collections of short stories) but largely speaking no more than reasonably good, some with quite neat twists. However there's the odd phrase here and there which really make this worth reading. He does crown it by the final story, The Blood Of A Wig, which is very good indeed.

I enjoyed the historical aspect and his hands-on handling of this period. However, some of the stories were a struggle for me to get thought and when I did reach the end was not left with a “wow!” as some of the readers were but rather a “hum.” Possibly I was expecting more character building than I got.
I do not regret the read. I met his son when the film maker visited Alvarado to interview townsfolk for a documentary of his famous father. I would like to see the documentary when it comes out but the book is not on my reread list.
