Beggars of Life book report
Last week, I finished reading Beggars of Life, by Jim Tully. It was ok - a quick read. I felt it was something of a period piece, and somewhat slight in its effect. Tho I am glad I read it. I was surprised at how little the book had to do with the film! Two or three individuals, and the character of the young woman who had been molested by her father (whom she kills), is about all that I recognized in the book as having ended up in the movie. Has anyone else read the book and seen the movie?
