Jim Whorton is being pretty hard on himself! He calls his ANGELA SLOAN "this supposedly comic novel about an abandoned child" and goes on to note of one of its settings, "Readers will know Stanleyville as the 'inner station' of Conrad's Heart of Darkness, and it is also, probably, the city V.S. Naipaul had in mind in A Bend in the River. What book made you laugh harder than these two international humor classics?" James Whorton, Jr., cracks me up. Read the whole article on the "Large Hearted Boy" "web" site.
