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.

This book took a long time for me to get into...but I am glad I stuck with it. The characters are quirky and borderline weird, but I grew to love them and cheered them on. I found myself laughing outloud at the same time wondering how any of this could happen to a real person as I also realized that it could, which is what made it laugh out loud funny:)

This was a pretty good book. A bit long, but decent.

This is one of my all-time favorites. A delightful romp into southern culture, with plenty of laugh out loud moments.
