I think this droll novel is a gem, a comic masterpiece, and it's brought me more pleasure than any work of fiction I've read in recent years.

Portis does have a way with description. The blurb on the cover (from Entertainment Weekly!) says "a glimpse of how a 20th-century Mark Twain might write" and that's exactly right. Absurd details about and around its outlandish characters make it funny throughout.
Storywise, it's aimless and just peters out at the end. But if you want a good laugh, it's definitely for you.
Brian Emerson doe a great job conveying the prose's tone.
