9780099506959: Now Is the Hour

1967. Rigby John Kluesener stands in the moonlight, a flower in his hair, his thumb out trying to hitch a ride on the road to San Francisco. The story of how he came to be there - of an adolescence spent on his parents' farm in Nowheresville, Idaho, of his father's misanthropy, his mother's strict Catholicism - is utterly real and totally unforgettable.

Review:

"Rich with knowing... deft, funny, heartbreaking... I LOVE THIS BOOK" (A.M. Homes)

"Powerful... a funny, sensitive picture of a young man whose plight will resonate with your inner idealist" ( Dazed & Confused)

"A quintessential American tale of emancipation... Spanbauer both ironises and embraces the classic American tropes his story draws on - Rigby John is a self-aware, self-deprecating, extremely witty narrator" ( Metro)

"Sophisticated, funny, poignant, sexy... Rigby's storytelling voice is natural, warm and positively addictive. The many pages of this breathtaking, romantic and unpredictable novel fly past. Rarely does such a gripping story match with such a loveable character. Sit back and enjoy the lovely partnership" ( Booklist)

Book Description:

'White small-town America gets its cherry busted in an orgy of cigarette smoke and racism' - Chuck Palahniuk
