"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Claude Dee is a Scripture-quoting ex-con whose attempts to put his prison education to use, first as revivalist preacher and later, with ingeniously contrived credentials, as sheriff, become comic disasters. In league with a gullible buddy and a freckle-faced, foul-mouthed young girl named Henry, Claude Dee survives tent collapses, sexually demanding women and the vagaries of law enforcement in rural America. Claude Dee's kind heart and a daffy woman are the cause of his return to prison, a 10-year stint for unsheriff-like obstruction of law. Former college professor Farris (Ramey mines Faulkner territory for comic effect, capturing the antic behavior of colorful backwoods denizens in their earthy vernacular and unabashed grittiness.
