Bad Medicine/Dann, Jack/Paper/0732259541/S056-C1
First there was On the Road, then there was Easy Rider, and now from the critically-acclaimed author of The Memory Cathedral and The Silent, comes the ultimate road novel - Bad Medicine.
Charlie Sarris is a "fix-it" man with no prospects. John Stone is an alcoholic Indian medicine man on the road. And they are both about to go on the biggest binge ever recorded - a joyous, wild, tender, heart-stopping quest to find the very meaning of life. They will steal cars, rob stores, drink whiskey, smoke dope, seduce girls; and discover the frightening magic and old powers that are still alive and working in the modern world of highways and electric heating.
In Bad Medicine Jack Dann uses his extraordinary craft to bring these characters to life and expose the dark and secret soul of America.
"A vivid and compelling vision-quest through the dark back roads and blue highways of the American soul." - Gardner Dozois.
"In Charlie Sarris and John Stone, jack Dann has created characters that will eventually take their place with Huck Finn and Dean Moriarty in the pantheon of American letters." - Lucius Shepard.
