The adventures of Douglas Bragg : a novel by Madison Jones( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the fall of 1960, Douglas Bragg decided to take a trip through the South with no particular destination in mind. And so the Journey begins for the young hero of Madison Jones's newest novel, The Adventures of Douglas Bragg." "Leaving his native Birmingham to see a world more interesting than his own, "college man" Bragg sets out on his hitchhiking trip. Before long, he is picked up by a salesman who seems normal enough - that is, until Bragg meets the salesman's mother. This sets off a series of events that alternates between the utterly ridiculous and the potentially disastrous." "On his journey, Bragg encounters a rogue's gallery of bizarre and often unsavory characters. There's Bo, the odious pig farmer; J.T., his delusional country-star-wannabe-son; Buster Bell, a washed-up Nashville musician better known for his outrageous house parties than for his music; and there's Mr. L.J. Hibbs, full-time funeral director - and part-time drug-dealer." "Bragg himself comes off as no angel; he is a rogue in the truest sense of the word. A habitual liar and shameless trickster, he often uses his talent for duplicity to extricate himself from the most desperate situations. And yet, he is not a true reprobate, finally showing that underneath he does in fact have a conscience."--Jacket
