Manboy: Sequel to Paperboy and Copyboy (Hardcover)
Victor Vollmer, introduced to readers in Paperboy and Copyboy, is 21 years old now and has been waiting for three years to reunite with Philomene Moreau, the South Louisiana free spirit who saved him from drowning in the Mississippi River. Soon after Phil arrives in Memphis, Vic's meticulously planned weekend comes crashing down as a world event unfolds.
Vic, still dealing with his worrisome stutter, and, Phil, needing badly to share her secret, grapple with the tumult paralyzing the city. Aiding in their desperate search to find solace is a wise soul from Vic's past.
Manboy is a work of historical fiction set against the actual newspaper headlines of a weekend in April 1968 that changed the world.
