Bouquets for Bama: “Rag Top”

Part of a posthumous salute to artist James Bama.

Rag Top, by Henry Gregor Felsen (Bantam, 1966). Originally published in 1954 as The Cup of Fury, this was one of Felsen’s many “hot-rodding” novels, written, he told Iowa’s Des Moines Register, “as a reaction to a rash of horrific accidents and teenage traffic fatalities.” The most famous among Felsen’s such yarns is certainly 1950’s Hot Rod.
