Quirky novel with twists and turns. College bound Lem sells encyclopedias door to door in Florida and winds up witnessing an assasination of two of his would=be clients, who were strange in themselves. The assassin insinuates himself into Lem's life, the sales business has it's own secrets, all entwined. Really interesting treatment! Each character has their own stories and all are interesting. Very different writing. I thought it was off beat and fun, warped and wonderful.
