Synopsis : Following the enormous success of the reissues of Charles Portis's first three novels-- The Dog of the South, Norwood, and Masters of Atlantis--comes the reissue of a fourth truly brilliant, wonderfully bizarre novel by one of our great American novelists.

Jimmy Burns is an expatriate American living in Mexico who has an uncommonly astute eye for the absurd little details that comprise your average American. For a time, Jimmy spent his days unearthing pre-Colombian artifacts. Now he makes a living doing small trucking jobs and helping out with the occasional missing person situation--whatever it takes to remain "the very picture of an American idler in Mexico, right down to the grass-green golfing trousers." But when Jimmy's laid-back lifestyle is seriously imposed upon by a ninety-pound stalker called Louise, a sudden wave of "hippies" (led by a murderous ex-con guru) in search of psychic happenings, and a group of archaeologists who are unearthing (illegally) Mayan tombs, his simple South-of-the-Border existence faces a clear and present danger.

Synopsis: Jimmy Burns is an expatriate American living in Mexico. For a time, Jimmy spent his days unearthing pre-Colombian artefacts. Now he makes a living doing small trucking jobs and helping out with the occasional missing person situation. However, Jimmy's laid back lifestyle is being seriously imposed upon by a ninety-pound stalker called Louise whose particular fascination with Jimmy is a mystery to him. Add to this a sudden wave of "hippies" (led by a murderous ex-con guru) in search of psychic happenings, archaeologists unearthing (illegally) the Mayan tombs, and Louise and her bizarre husband's quests for UFO landing sites, and Jimmy's simple existence is facing a clear and present danger.
