A long read, but lots of fun. Our hero, Raleigh, and his irrepressibly loyal, and fat, friend, head off on a quest to find Raleigh's father - who has discharged himself from the hospital, taken all his money out of the bank, and vanished with a young black female mental patient in a yellow convertible. Very witty and wry humor. Worth the time to read it.

Malone really is a master. He is my favorite thing to do during my "listless" hours. This story is about a son who is sent on a quest by his slightly zany father. As is true with all Malone books, the characters are great. There is an ex con, a blubbering best friend, a con man, and assorted other players throughout. Malone explores family and the ties that bind them together, all the while taking you for the "quest" of your life.
