SYNOPSIS: Warren Spooner is born alongside his dead twin, and things get worse for him from there. His natural bad luck isn't helped by his penchant for criminal and foolish behavior as he blunders through life. His tragicomic misadventures as a baseball player, a beat reporter, and novelist are at odds with the philosophy of his upright naval officer stepfather, whose dedication to family and right-living clash mightily with Spooner's wild antics. National Book Award-winner Pete Dexter (PARIS TROUT, DEADWOOD) has spun out a rambling, twisted, frequently funny picaresque tale that, like his previous work, captures the American spirit in both its viciousness and vitality. Selected by Publishers Weekly as one of the 100 Best Books of 2009. 466 pages
CONDITION: Very good to good. The pages are in very good condition. The cover does show some wear along the edges and corners.
