Quantity: 1 available

Heartbreaking and wickedly funny, Rides of the Midway whirls through the manic Mississippi nights of haunted teenager Noel Weatherspoon. Weatherspoon is many things: An unwitting clairvoyant, an extreme asthma sufferer, a ghost-seeing insomniac, an endearing dopehead, a wanna-be erotic photographer, a would-be baseball star, a lamentable virgin, and a suspected, somnambulent mercy-killer. Spinning in ten directions at once by his passions and missteps, he finds himself haunted by ghosts both real and imagined: By the specter of the boy he knocked into oblivion while sliding home in a Little League game, and by the spirit of his father, a POW who disappeared in Vietnam. The binding is deep green and black in a moire pattern. The jacket has a scuff mark on the back. 316 pages. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
