Born crippled and poor, this is a novel that tells of one white, American boy’s thirty-year journey to become what some critics call an “everyman,” as the L.A. culture critic Mary McNamara described the typical American “everyman” as being “male, white, Christian, physically able, mentally stable, financially sound and essentially kind,” all without bringing attention to himself and trying to make an honest living by doing what he loves, writing. The story of a boy growing up in a small Texas town (and the man he will become to travel the world) finds its self-awakening and fantastical end, like Holden Caulfield, in New York’s Central Park.
