Description

Young T-Bird Murphy seeks to gain a foothold in the turbulent and menacing world of 60s and 70s Oakland. While his mother runs with Hell’s Angels bikers, T-Bird falls beneath the men’s fists and favours, finds solace and hope in the slightest of rewards, and seeks to survive.

Publisher Review

"This novel is a lively--not to say wrenching--contribution to a seldom recognized genre: the Internal Combustion Novel...Williamson's writing becomes transcendent. His prose cuts loose in torrid rhythms that evoke the peril and exuberance of jazz.""--"Sally Eckhoff," The New York Times Book Review" "[A] rowdy first novel. Onward!"--John Skow, "Time" "This is an exceptional novel...resonant...Williamson skillfully creates a unique narrative. With sparse dialogue and T-Bird's original, daring voice, the novel proves to be a remarkable literary debut."--Neil Giordano, "Newsday "
