Description

“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.” —Publisher's Weekly “This witty, often touching portrayal of a dirt-street-wise youth’s coming-of-age sparkles with intelligence.” —Booklist “Thoughtful, surprising, and delightful entertainment.” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch
