Little Big Man Little Big Man by Thomas Berger


My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read this novel cover to cover over three days in Mexico lying in bed with a fever. Read a little. Nap a little. Read a little. Nap a little. I highly recommend this approach to it. Jack Crabb through his distinctive voice comes so alive that you start talking back to him.

I am hard pressed to think of any better American picaresque novel.

In the name of everything sacred, I beg you. Please do not nominate On the Road in response.
