Stephen Doster was born in England and grew up on St. Simons Island, Georgia. He currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee. This is his first novel.From Library Journal:
This first novel, a picaresque set in the coastal area of South Georgia, calls to mind some of the best of the genre, including Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn and James Howard Kunstler's An Embarrassment of Riches. At age 17, Ensworth Harding shows little ambition or promise, having spent most of his life hanging out at the local golf club on St. Simons Island, GA. On Ensworth's 18th birthday, his father drives him to the Coastal Highway, points him north, and kicks him out of the car with $100 and a letter to deliver to a law firm in Savannah. The next month proves the most memorable of Ensworth's life, as he wanders the Georgia coast, blundering into and out of drug deals, jailbreaks, attempted suicides, and revival meetings, and encountering the worst and best of society. Along the way he meets crooked politicians, a jail escapee, a witch doctor, an elderly Gullah gentleman who speaks only Latin, a possible ghost, and, most importantly, Lord Baltimore, his personal guide and protector who produces and directs many of the adventures firsthand. A wonderful coming-of-age novel, Lord Baltimore will appeal to youth as well as adults for its fantasy, adventure, and basic truths. Thomas L. Kilpatrick, Southern Illinois Univ Lib., Carbondale
