Christopher Flynn I know it's overdone ... "O Lost!" and all that, running through the pages. But this giant book has such a brilliant voice, creates such a vivid world, and evokes an experience of growing up that's so rarely matched. Sort of a Catcher in the Rye for the overwrought sons of Tobacco Road. Or maybe not, but I love this one and all its excess.
