5.0 out of 5 stars A superb achievement - Highly recommended, 12 May 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Stone Junction: An Alchemical Potboiler (Paperback)
A marvelous book, one I discovered almost by accident. Dodge employs incredible breadth and scope to this very funny and very sad novel.
The spiritual and cultural deprivation of TV-centric, suburban post-war America are tangibly absent from this book. Instead, Dodge celebrates an America of outlaws: gambling, casual sex, recreational drugs, political subversion, and magic. The alternative approaches to life used by Stone Junction's characters make America are far more dynamic and thrilling place.
Full of wit, wisdom, and a bizarre and unforgettable cast of intelligent lunatics, this is one of the most enjoyable novels I've read in a long time.
