217 pp. inscribed by author on half-title page. 1954. Roger Banister breaks the four-minute mile. Polio is KOd by Dr. Jonas Salk. The Supreme Court scrambles southern sensibilities with Brown vs. Board of Education. In Atlanta, Scooter Thompson grows up too quickly at age 12, while best bud Billy Wilson tries to pantomime his way through puberty. In this chuckling, haunting stew of southern fiction, Ray Abernathy takes us on a twisting trip through the backyards of a neighborhood filled with salacious family secrets and pug-ugly kids like Barnyard McAllister, Kisser and Killer Murphy, and the hog-bodied Bevo Smith. Can two weird street kids stave off starting high school while grifting every hypocritical adult on Dill Avenue? Will Billy become the first male cheerleader at football crazy Sylvan High? Is it possible for Scooter to make it through the Rev. Bob Thomas Dancing Waters Festival without succumbing to the spirit? Are Billy's testicles swollen to the size of oranges, or the size of grapefruits? All questions for the ages. 0.0. Bookseller Inventory # 1419683179HPB103012
