About this title

Synopsis:

A one-of-a-kind, fully-illustrated debut novel about one rest- less and curious young man’s summer spent in a small North Dakota town—a meditation on a time in life when you don’t so much unfold the map as start to draw it. 

As  written  and  painted  by  Jonathan  Twingley,  this beautifully illustrated semi-autobiographical novel is a paean to the America that Jack Kerouac explored and  Joseph  Mitchell  and  Walt  Whitman  celebrated.  Set  in a small town nestled in the badlands of North Dakota, this coming-of-age novel paints a loving portrait of oddball characters, the down-and-out, the ordinary, the outcasts, and the oft-ignored.

 

Jonny is a dreamer, content wherever he is, as long as he has his sketchpad, paints, and paintbrushes. After a year in New York City attending art school, he escapes to the wide-open oasis of North Dakota. Jonny’s home-away-from-home is The Badlands Saloon, the local watering hole. There, he meets Willie Beck, the hyperactive elderly man who doesn’t seem to talk so much as explode into speech; Jimmy Threepence, who likes to sing old English songs at the top of his lungs; Boochie, a convicted murderer; and Lacy, a Native American woman who is an intoxicating free spirit. Though Jonny spends his nights in the Saloon, he spends his days riding his bike through the local hills and sketching the tourists.

Featuring eye-catching full-color illustrations that bring to life the novel’s landscape and characters, The Badlands Saloon is a unique American novel.
