Pete Dexter's Spooner

You can always count on Pete Dexter, but, though this one is about another outsider-oddball, Spooner is unlike any previous Dexter novel. For one thing it is very funny, but, as it moves from slapstick to tragedy, it is also going to break your heart. Read it, and anything else by Dexter,including his journalism.

Only read TRAIN, PAPERBOY and PARIS TROUT but all are utterly sublime.
