The flatness of the tone of the narrator makes the homeless criminal winos not lovable for all that, but utterly ridiculous. The structure of the novella is also rather stiff, each chapter can pretty much stand on its own as a story, and each one contains one incident. The work could have been made into a older style film, though I don't know whether it already has been (perhaps it would be time for a remake).
