Tape Delay Confessions from the Eighties Underground
Kudzu - A Novel by Charles Neal
Lowell Gaines is wandering through America's Deep South attempting to find direction in his banal life. After abandoning his job at a carnival, he crosses paths with prostitutes, perverts, strippers, psychotics and a variety of other abject figures. He lands in a bug-infested mobile home next to an old friend from the fair, gets a job at a fast food restaurant and slowly becomes alienated from those around him. Lowell finally arrives at a crossroads: What wisdom he has gained and what path he will take is anyone's guess.
