"The novel's exquisite prose, which often reads like lyric poetry, draws us into the daily lives of the Stamper family… We've heard Sometimes described as a novel about a family feud. That's like saying War and Peace is about one of Napoleon's shorter-lived military campaigns. Each of the Stampers is a three-dimensional person, and that leads to some fun, some heartache and a great literary catharsis" (Henley, Wikelund & Lindquist, 39). It was adapted to film in 1970 (a.ka. Never Give A Inch) directed by Paul Newman and starring Newman, Henry Fonda, Michael Sarrazin and Lee Remick. The cast also included Richard Jaeckel in an Academy Award-nominated performance.
