Selected by Sarah Broadhurst

This modern odyssey of one young man's quest for knowledge and understanding explores a world where revenge, betrayal, revolution, mind-bending chemicals, magic and murder are the norm. With jaw-dropping scope, a stiletto-sharp wit and an array of utterly bizarre characters, Jim Dodge has woven a mesmerising and age-defining tale. Like a river constantly changing direction, Stone Junction is both stomach-clutchingly hilarious and heart-rendingly sad - but always utterly compelling. Prepare to step into a world where nothing is ever as it seems.

If you like Jim Dodge you might also like to read books by Tom Robbins, Thomas Pynchon and Philipp Meyer.

Stone Junction by Jim Dodge

Reviews

'It is a non-stop take, making you laugh, cry and wonder. The characters are excellent and even though you know you that many of the events are genuinely impossible, it feels completely believable thoughout.' - Highland News Group
