you must read this book,
By A Customer
This review is from: Stone Junction: An Alchemical Potboiler (Paperback)
That this book contains an introduction by one of the most talented, though frustatingly silent, writers of the last century, Thomas Pynchon, should be reason enough for purchase. If, thus far, it hasn't then i can only say that Dodge is every bit as good, but thankfully not as impenetrably dense as Pynchon can at first appear.
There were even rumours for a while that Dodge is Pynchon but this is untrue.
The story is wild, hilarious, incredibly fast and full of weird and wonderful characters, violence, the occult and the myths and legends of America. To attempt explanation of the plot would do the book a disservice - it must be read so it surprises and shocks you as any proper "tale" should.
Jim Dodge is the author of three novels and a collection of poetry: all published by Rebel Inc, all essential.
