Tierce[edit]

I think his contract was not renewed for reasons other than just this book. He did plead guilty to something involving sexual relations with students.


POV[edit]

This article sounds like an overwhelmingly positive book review.Sophy's Duckling 19:23, 11 December 2005 (UTC)


The phrase "post-sentence" is in accurate. Lester Ballad is accused and jailed but not convicted and not sentenced for the rape. Also, it is misleading to make a great deal of the rape accusation as a plot point.--Mstarli 04:34, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

Time period[edit]

When is this book meant to be set? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.106.107.147 (talk) 16:26, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

The article mentions this took place in the 1960's, but having just finished the book, I was led to believe it occurred in the 1930's because one character is arrested for selling whiskey, leading me to believe it's set during prohibition. The book never outright says a date. Anyone have any clearer insight? 70.176.183.89 (talk) 07:13, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
