Him With His Foot in His Mouth and Other Stories

By: Bellow, Saul

Price: $90.00

Publisher: New York, Harper & Row: 1984

Every once in a while you find a book that is so perfect and so beautiful it leaves you with that contented feeling that everything is calm and right with the world. Land O' Goshen leaves you with a warm and fuzzy euphoric high. This is the story of a boy, Buddy, his mysterious companion, Sack, and his new girlfriend, Cissy. The boy and the girl meet during a brutal religious war, fall in love in the midst of nature's grandeur, and literally hurtle across the Alabama landscape in a phantasmagoria of Southern folk legendry and late-twentieth-century pop culture.
