First Edition (first printing).The third novel by the author of WESTERN SWING and SOCIAL BLUNDERS, the story of a small-town 1963 girl who persuades the new boy in town to "get a jump on growing up." Fine/Fine. Inscribed by Sandlin on the title page, as follows: "7/18/95. To Bill, The insurance guy. Thanks for buying two of these. Tim Sandlin.". N° de réf. du libraire 1978
"Funny, shocking, downright revolting, and occasionally sad. Sandlin is a compelling storyteller...Skipped Parts is somewhere between The Catcher in the Rye and Even Cowgirls Get the Blues."
-Los Angeles Times Book Review
Banished to the hinterlands of Wyoming, rebellious Lydia Callahan and her thirteen-year-old son Sam have no choice but to cope. But while Lydia drinks and talks to the moose head on the wall, Sam finds a friend in local girl Maurey Pierce.
One of the wildest, raunchiest, most heartfelt coming-of-age novels of the past thirty years, Skipped Parts puts Tim Sandlin in the upper echelon of contemporary comic novelists.
"Dazzling...moving...Sam's carapace is humor...He thinks like Holden Caulfield and has Joseph Heller's take on despair. His Walter Mitty–like fantasies are tiny comic gems... In the end you'll find yourself rooting for Sam."
-New York Times Book Review
"A lighthearted, amusing, and tender story of preteen wisdom, adult immaturity, and the fine line between...An offbeat, engaging novel."
"This witty, often touching portrayal of a dirt-street-wise youth's coming-of-age sparkles with intelligence."
"Thoughtful, surprising, and delightful entertainment."
-St. Louis Post-Dispatch
A propos de l'auteur:
Tim Sandlin has published eight novels. Two of his screenplays have been made into movies. He turned forty with no phone, TV, or flush toilet and spent more time talking to the characters in his head than the people around him. He now has seven phone lines, four TVs he doesn't watch, three flush toilets, and a two-headed shower. He lives happily (indoors) with his family in Jackson, Wyoming.
