The Sweetmeat Saga

Yarborough
B. H. Friedman
2022

New edition of the 1964 debut novel by B. H. Friedman, author of the biography Jackson Pollock: Energy Made Visible (1972).

"Friedman has written a thoroughly amoral, devilish, subversive and downright un-American novel. It's very entertaining."
Minneapolis Tribune, December 20, 1964

"One cannot say enough in praise of its intelligence, ingenuity, virtuosity . . . nor can one attack its sincerity, the cool authenticity of its half-comic, half-serious approach."
The San Francisco Examiner, December 13, 1964

"Friedman writes well, but his material may not appeal to a wide audience. It's hip."
Rapid City Journal, November 15, 1964

"[A] remarkable first novel."
Chicago Tribune, December 27, 1964
