    1. (view spoiler)[Bettie's BooksThe shelving, status updates and star rating constitute how I felt about this book. (hide spoiler)]


    2. I’ve watched the movie by Corman (1962), based on the book.Mr Cramer, the main character played by W. Shatner, arrives to Caxton with a sort of “mission”: to promote racial hate, it seems. He’s got all the seducing techniques you can imagine. He’s an agitator; a master instigator. He intrudes upon the psyche of the people and the life of this small place; soon, black people are in a dire situation; ads start saying: “nigger out!".


    3. Everyone should read this book. Its message is just as powerful today as it was in 1959 when it was first published. A fantastic read from a great but short lived writer who wrote many of the best original TWILIGHT ZONE shows.
