Synopsis:

A teen’s life is complicated.  Add an overworked dad, a distraught mom.
Enter an old man from the wrong side of the tracks.
He knows things.  He’s there when you need him.
 
This happens to someone; it’s not a maybe thing.  People get hurt.  People die.  There’s a dad who loves his kid but works all the time.  When he doesn’t work, he drinks.  When he drinks he’s out of control.

There’s a mom.  She knows dad is overworked, a good man carrying too much responsibility. 

The kid turns to the handy man to learn a man’s skills.  In the old man from the wrong side of the tracks, the kid finds unusual skills and terrible—but true—lessons.  He finds that his own safety comes at a cost to his unfortunate friend.  He finds growing up comes at a cost to himself.  This is the story of such a kid, told by himself after he has lived much of his life, come to terms with his parents’ weaknesses, and learned that seemingly insignificant people carry more pain than he can imagine, though he has already seen plenty.

The Ghost of Bud Parrott

Runner-Up, Reader’s Choice Best Fiction, 2011

Judson Hout

 

An old man from the wrong side of the tracks proves unforgettable

 

                                                               

 

“An engaging and sure-to-raise eyebrows Southern coming of age novel by an experienced

And sensitive author.”

                                --Billy D. Higgins, author of The Barling Darling: Hal Smith in American Baseball

 

“A fine Southern novel, but much more than that, too;

The Ghost of Bud Parrott is a racial-healing saga for the ages.”

                                --Hon. Harry F. Barnes, U.S. District Judge, Western District of Arkansas

 

“All the charm we have come to expect from Southern fiction—and an ethical study, too.”

                                --Rev. Buddy Ratliff, Senior Pastor, United Methodist Church, Arkansas District

 

“Remarkably entertaining while at the same time opening a window on the social disease that is bigotry.”

--Rev. Lawrence F. Braden, M.D., Physician and Priest, Episcopal Diocese of Arkansas

 

“Baseball fans and those who love a well-turned coming-of-age story will find themselves absorbed in

this tale of life in small towns, farmlands, factories and ballparks  from Pennsylvania to Alabama to Arkansas.”

                                --Brian K, Hardwick, CEO, Regal Energy Corporation, Dallas, Texas
