A gripping story

The novel focuses on a young man, named Earl, who leads a harsh lifestyle, lives from hand to mouth and attempts to find his place among indifferent relatives. The story starts out slow with Earl, the narrator, drifting from the past to the present, wandering from place to place, and living from hand to mouth. Simultaneously, he is trying to find a man named Red, who disappears and wants to remain that way. The flawed characters are sometimes humorous, impertinent, and often crue
