Starting with his mother's 'roundhouse' right to a nun's jaw, Stone Junction is a modern odyssey of one man's quest for knowledge and understanding in a world where revenge, betrayal, revolution, mind-bending chemicals, magic and murder are the norm.
With jaw-dropping scope, a stiletto-sharp wit and an array of utterly bizarre characters, Jim Dodge has woven a mesmerising and age-defining tale. Like a river constantly changing direction, Stone Junction is both stomach-clutching hilarious and heart-rendingly sad - but always utterly compelling.
Prepare to step into a world where nothing is ever as it seems.

Review:

"It is a non-stop take, making you laugh, cry and wonder. The characters are excellent and even though you know you that many of the events are genuinely impossible, it feels completely believable thoughout." (Highland News Group)

"It's a demented modern odyssey of one strange man's quest for truth and knowledge in a decidedly bizarre - and decidedly American - world." (Sunday Tribune)

"This novel is remarkable for its breadth. Amo is skilfully woven into the fabric of real America, and Dodge's sweeping take on that country, combined with the humanity of each of his vast array of characters, lends this book a particular kind of majesty" (The Observer)

"an irresistible kaleidoscope of manic, tragic and exquisitely funny Americana." (Time Out)

"Within half an hour of starting this novel, I was absolutely hooked . . . it kept me guessing all the way to the end." (The Times)
