The film of MIDNIGHT COWBOY has assumed a life of its own, but the novel upon which it was based has been undeservedly eclipsed. James Leo Herlihy was one of a clutch of Sixties cult novelists who sought to chart America's loss of innocence, bringing to bear a raw, recording eye on the American novel.
